Thx for the quick reply. Who is your cousin that has done a lot of research on our name? Yes, I would definitely like a copy of the lineage you have, my snail-mail is: 308 Cedar Crest Rd, Rose Hill KS 67133-9401; ph 316-776-9171. I have a number of "MacLachlan" Clan trinkets (the coat-of-arms...and even a neck tie with the tartan). By the way there is a Clan MacLachlan Assoc of North America. There are old MacLachlan Castle ruins off of Loch Fynne on W. coast of Scotlant, and a new one built as well. If you would like to view my research on-line feel free to do so at: http://worldconnect.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?db=wwaynemc...
