Admin Note re Genealogical Posts to the Clan Johnstone Board & List

Dear Clan Johnstone Posters:

Please bear in mind that the genealogical portion of the Clan Johnstone list and board should keep within the time frame of the Clan System being active in Scotland. This would be up through 1745-47 as it was quashed following the Jacobite Wars.

Should you post genealogical queries to the Board and find them "deleted", take a look to the Johnstone Surname Board as I likely have moved them to the surname board where they are more appropriate to the topic. [If you have a varient spelling used in your post, they may be moved to a board that shares that spelling,if it exists, otherwise they will go to Johnstone .]

This is not to say that the Clan Johnstone list and board are not for genealogical queries and posts. This is to provide a reminder that they are CLAN specific and not general in time and place. Period circa 1000 through 1747 and Scotland, Ireland, Europe in geographic nature. Think of those under the Clan system and where they would have been, as such. Where and when their Chiefs resided, origins of the name and time frame/locations descended from.

Remember that clan lists and boards are more inclusive than strictly Genealogy and History, but that there are guidelines as posted by John Hansen when he created the Boards.

If you are looking for general genealogy of the Johnstone
Family, then the Johnstone surname list and board is where to find it.

If you are looking to find out more about Clan Johnstone
then this is the board and list for you. They are clan specfic, not genealogy specific. Genealogy on this board and list is focused on that of the Clan era... up through circa 1747 and only in the areas of the Scottish clans... Scotland, Ireland and a bit of Europe. Not the USA, Canada or Australia, etc.

Yours Aye,
