New Scottish Clans iOS App Sets Out to Chart Scottish Migration Around the World on St. Andrew’s Day

 

From the website:

 With information on more than 350 Scottish clans, the 69p Scottish Clans iOS app attempts to put a little bit of Scotland in your pocket. But it’s attempting to do more than that — it wants to chart the Scottish global migration.

The app, which was launched today to celebrate St. Andrew’s Day, packs more information than you’ll likely need on each of the clans, including the all important tartan, family history, chief and crest. It also includes a registration system, which is intended to record the locations and spread of Scots throughout the world. The developer, ScotClans‘ eventual aim is to map the Scottish Diaspora, which the Scottish government is also pretty keen on that will allow Scots to connect to their homeland and to each other — no matter where they are.

As I am not an iPhone user, this is all pretty meaningless to me, but maybe there is something here for us?

Making conections

The more information you can give about the people you mention, the more chance there is of someone else connecting with your family.

Dates and places of births, deaths and marriages all help to place families.

Professions also help.

'My great-grandmother mother was a Douglas from Montrose' does not give many clues to follow up! But a bit of flesh on the bones makes further research possible. But if we are told who she married, what his profession was and where the children were baptised, then we can get to work.

Maybe it is time to update the information in your profile?
