Argyll Families and Places argyll-history@groups.io

Interested in your family history (genealogy), our local history, research, people, places of Argyll? you are welcome. 
This group will replace the Rootsweb Sct-Argyll list (closing March 2020).. and hopefully will grow a new life of connections, friends and families.

    • Please post your Argyll families : with as much info about Dates, Places, Names as you know
    • Don't forget you can set how often you receive emails - from all, daily, weekly to none
    • this is not a clans site, there are other places for that (clans had been disbanded long before written family history records established)
    • Please help others, whether its local knowledge, genealogical research, or however you can help. Be kind, be patient. 
    • If you put surnames in CAPITALS in the subject line and in posts it really helps to make your search eye catching and can help define surnames from first names
    • Anything that is not relevant will be deleted at admins discretion. 
    • Start a new thread for your question, even if its inspired by someone else's posts, that way it comes up easily for others to find in the future
    • Please do NOT ask for look ups for any subscription or pay for sites .. it may be that a generous soul might offer on occasion but it is NOT to be expected or to be encouraged.
    • Please DO add Argyll historical, heritage and genealogical websites in the files section .. lets create a wonderful local resource 
    • please do add suggestions how to make this new group valuable and interesting 
    • Are there others who can volunteer to be joint admin / moderators
