Dear Todd,

My family migrated from Scotland to Ireland in the 1600 or 1700's. My Dad told me every male descendent in our family has the name Erskine in it. Ex: my Dad's name was Charles William Erskine Duncan, his father was named William Erskine Duncan, his father before him was also William Erskine Duncan and so on. The first William migrated to New York from Ireland prior to 1800. Apparently years ago there was a fire in the Belfast records Office and only 11,000 documents were saved. This is heartbreaking. These were records for Scotland, Ireland, Wales, etc. This have proven to be a huge roadblock in going further back in my family tree. If you or others have any info as to how my family might have incorporated Clan Erskine into Clan Duncan, I would be greatly indebted to you. Thank you very much.

Karen Duncan
