Title: Yes, DNA testing
Posted by: Alan
Date: 06 September 2008

I got the test just before christmas, and very rewarding it proved to be as I have a match with the Cheifs of the clan- 

I shall re-post a quick note on what I found about my family tree and posted in on the yahoo group.

> My name is Alan Livingstone currently resident in Glasgow Scotland,

> His father was also Alan, which lead to me being 6 foot and called

> Lochaline and with strong links to his mothers side Jane McPhee 1877
>
> Alan parents were Hugh Livingstone (1874 Tyree) and Jane Macphee
> (1877 Fernish Argyll). Thankfully my grampa above kept the birth
> certificate of his mother and lots of her sisters, which certainly

> more information on where they all went. I know quite a few
> emigrated. Most were born in Greenock, Scotland where his father and
> grandfather were both boilermakers for the large shipping building
> industry along the clyde.
>
> Hugh Livingstone (1874) parents were
> Duncan Livingstone 1853 Tobermorry and Flora McInnes 1852.
>
> Duncans parents were Hugh Livingstone 1808 and Mary McDonald 1822
>
> I had some difficulty determining the correct parents of Duncan
> Livingstone. I knew it was one of two, but both matched all the
> details that I had. It was the census information in 1841 and 1851
> where I identified more of the family members that finally allowed me
> to match his parents.
>
> Hughs Parents were Duncan Livingstone 1778 and suspected to have died
> at Waterloo and Catherine McDonald.
>
> This is where my work stopped as I had no idea on where to go next,
> but I happened to come across the fantastic
> http://www.mullgenealogy.co.uk/ website, where I located a Hugh
> Livingstone that had roughly the same information I had, and the
> family names seemed to match my family names.
>
> This was Neil Livingstone 1746 who married Mary Morrison.
>
> Thats a snapshot of my family tree in text, so I'm not sure if it
> reads ok. If anyone wants any more information then I'll gladly give
> what I have.
