McLeod/MacLeod

Surnames: McLeod/MacLeod
My McLeod ancestors came from Halkirk, Caithness, Scotland and Thurso, Scotland. They settled in Moose Factory, Ontario, working for the Hudson Bay Company.
Awhile back, I had been working on my family tree, and some how ended up with one of my McLeod's (MacLeod) being related to some Mc/MacLeod's that actually settled in Glengarry county.
However, upon checking dates, I noticed that a father was younger than a son. I deleted that line, and now the whole thing is gone.
I am wondering if anyone has information for their Mc/MacLeod's going back to Halkirk, Caithness or Thurso.
I do have information back to my 3rd great grandfather on the Halkirk McLeod's and 4th great grandfather on the Thurso MacLeod's.
I now live in Glengarry County, and would be thrilled to know I might be related to someone that lives here.
Thank you.
Wendy

Do you have or have access to the "MacLeods of Glengarry" There may be some info there which wld help in your search. I am a MacLeod on my mothers side and did do some research on that side of the family but they were mainly from the Isle of Skye and Inverness

I was wondering about that book. Is it available at the library?
Thanks for answering.

This book was published in 60's or 70's and is likely out of print. I scanned my copy which I had given to my daughter and have it on my computer. I may be able to put it on a CD for you. E-mail me at "rancheroo2@yahoo.ca

I doubt it is available at most libraries. You could try your local ones. You may also want to try the following:
R&L Books in Alexandria 613 525 9949
David Anderson Books Williamstown 613 347 7192

Thanks, my friend owns R&L Books, I will give her a call, and I have also had dealings with David Anderson before, in finding a rare book.
Thanks for your help.
