    I found your site quite by accident yesterday and have enjoyed reading all the info about Killin. Tho I do not live in Killin- my genealogy roots are here , and who knows, perhaps I have “genealogy cousins ” living in Killin.
    I am very interested in finding “the facts” about my family of Campbells .Older living family relatives say we are Breadalbane Campbells, however ,seeing and hearing are very different.I am one who likes to see the facts, not just hear about them. Perhaps someone here will be able to help me .

    There are some members names here I recognize from previous contacts on message boards.

    My ancestor from Miln of Finlarig, Killin
    4th great grandfather

    JAMES CAMPBELL
    28 Jan. 1743- Killin –26 Sept. 1824 Charlottetown, PEI, Canada–
    youngest son of Alexander Campbell and Mary Cameron.

    I am needing help in finding the truth and to learn how and where to search effectively for his family information , in particular his parents and his siblings.

    Hi Patricia,Ipicked up your note dated 2006 on the Killin website whilst investigating the children of Alexander Campbell and Mary Cameron of which your James Campbell B1742 Miln of Finlarig is one.My wife is a Breadalbane Campbell and I have her family tree back to 1750 and I am trying to find why the family tradition is that they are directly connected to the Earldom of Breadalbane.I am as confident as I can be that James father Alaxanderwas a child of John campbell and Margaret Campbell and John was one of two sons of Duncan, Lord Ormelie who was passed over for the title in favour of his younger brother in the late 1600’s
    I have a lot of research in support of this and I am happy to share it with you if it is of interest. You can c
