Title: Question about Ancient records
Posted by: David Wyse Livingston
Date: 20 May 2008

Hello Everyone,

I just wanted to start a question session about Historical records with everyone world wide.

Who has a copy of the oldest records that talk about Livingstone, MacLea, MacOnlea, Mac Duinnshleibhe?

I will admit all I have is Google Books to review and anything current is most likely incorrect assumptions pulled from other resources. (ie. http://books.google.com/books?id=f899xH_quaMC&pg=PA1284&dq=%22Duinnshleibhe%22+Scotland&sig=CdjytgATgRWsaAokjFNdxDXIzac#PPA1284,M1) Written in 2006 it reads:

"Descended from a branch of the Mac an Leagha family which migrated to Scotland around the end of the 13th century, Scotland's principal medical family, the Beatons, has been studied in depth by the hostorian, John bannerman."
- Side note, does the DNA Project show a relationship between Beaton and Maclea\Livingstone?

The oldest books I have read from Google Books come from possibly 1896 (possibly 187x) "the Celtic Monthly"... and that can also have some bias in it, but less than something written in 1950.. or 2000.

This question can also help us create a virtual library of family related material, so if you have a 1930's book, 1850, a list of books from anywhere in the world that relates to MacLea\Livingstone or any naming variance please let us know.

So books, manuscripts, copies of ancient books, digital scans... just anything that can be "touched" compared to "I read an article about a story the author read of a tale told..." etc. Pre-1745 would be awesome, or even around the 1776 time of name changing.

Thanks Everyone.
David
