Title: Old Folklore

Dear Kin, 

I have spent many enjoyable hours learning about our shared ancient past and have an elderly 88 year old father who is spending his last few years on this planet connecting with his Morvern/Isle of Lismore Maconlea ancestors through the Young Baron's wonderful tales.

It is for these reasons that I feel such a deep sense of hurt that some of you have turned your back on the "old folklore", some I dare say have turned their back on their historic Gaelic roots completely. I respect everyones right to their oppinions, but I cannot accept the notion that all the Livingstone history of the past is nothing more than "old folklore". Many of those fine highland researchers and authors are no longer with us, so they clearly lack the ability to defend the so called "old folklore" of the Argyll Livingstones. 

I came to this site because I thought this was the place where I would find some appreciation of our ancient gaelic history instead I feel ridiculed and unappreciated for defending it.

Sincerely yours, 

Donald Livingston Clink
