Dear Clan Stewart Posters:
Please bear in mind that the genealogical portion of the Clan Stewart 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 Stewart 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 Stewart.]
This is not to say that the Clan Stewart 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 this list and board are more inclusive than strictly Genealogy and History, but that there are guidlines as posted by John Hansen when he created the Boards. Please
refer to his initial post which will be found here:http://boards.ancestry.com/mbexec?htx=admin.message&r=rw...
