Hi Evelyn,
I would be interested in learning more about your "initiative involving all cadet families of Clan Donald"? What does "cadet" mean in this context?

I have traced my McDonell/MacDonald roots in Glengarry County to before 1800 and this is where I'm stopped. It's possible that my ancestors came from Scotland on the ship MacDonald or first to the US and then to Glengarry after the Revolutionary War.

My biggest challenge is sorting out the names. Everybody is a McDonell or MacDonald and the given names are all Allans, Johns, Archibalds, Alexanders. Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Linda MacDonald

PS. I am a member of Clan Donald Canada (Glengarry Branch)
