A new book from Scotland: FROM A HOLLOW ON THE HILL, by Nancy
Black, published by the author, 1999. This recently published
family history merits attention. It is subtitled "the history
and tales of the Lorn and Fortingall families" -- Blacks,
MacIntyres, McCowans, Livingstones, MacDougalls, Campbells,
Colquhouns, McInnes, MacGregors, Sinclairs, McKechnies,
McDiarmid, Camerons, Macdonalds, Cummings, Macfarlanes. The
parishes of the story are: in Perthshire, Fortingall; in
Argyllshire, Kilmore and Kilbride, Kilninver, Kilbrandon and
Kilchatton, Kilmartin. The text flows easily, in and out of
history and the childhood memories of the author, varied with
references to some ups and downs of the genealogical research.
There are extracts from historical documents: a school register,
muster rolls, an 1837 directory, and estate records, to mention
a few. This is a very pleasant way to absorb history, and
acquire some useful knowledge about sources. There are pedigree
charts, a glossary, and an interesting bibliography.
The book is an A4 size (about 8 by 11 inches), soft cover, in
quality glossy paper. There are 164 pages; black and white
illustrations. It can be ordered from the author, by writing to:
Nancy Black, Torwood, Oban, Argyll, Scotland, PA34 4LU. The
cost, in British pounds only, is 18.50 including surface
postage, or 22.85 including air mail postage.
