The photo above was taken by me, Teresa, in June 2011. It is the view from the top of the ferry heading west from Oban, Scotland towards the Isle of Mull. On the map below, Oban is in the green area at about at 5.5 and 56.5. This area of Scotland, the Hebrides, is where our Hamilton Paternal Y-DNA has its earliest ancestry. The early people there were known as the Dal Riata.

I created this website/blog as a place where the descendants of John Hamilton can share and document what we have learned about our immigrant ancestor. There has been a group of John Hamilton descendants working together, via our Yahoo Group, since 3 October 2007.
