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. ~ Teresa (Hamilton/Pepper) Rust – Owner and Administrator

The map below shows an area of Scotland, the Hebrides, which is where our Hamilton Paternal Y-DNA has its earliest ancestry. The early people there were known as the Dal Riata.
