Confirming discoveries
Alexander Sutherland is my 7th Great Grandfather from whom I'm paternally descended. He emigrated to America via Yorktown in 1654. The last name was changed by Fendel (1767-1834) to Sutherlin and I'm trying to discover why. I've only begun my ancestral search a couple years ago and would appreciate any help with verifications and additional information. I've researched the line somewhat to 41 BC but now must add the branches to the trunk. Being part of something which pre and post dates ones self is a privilege.

Family history!
Hello! I have been doing my family history, being a 'Mowat' I understood they belonged to your clan, and just come across Dunrobin Castle for my 11th Great Grand father the 13th Earl. I will do some more tomorrow, but looking forward to reading about the castle soon!

Dunrobin Castle
Just wanted to express my gratitude to the builders of Dunrobin Castle. For various reasons it is a place I carry in my heart forever.

Sutherlands in The Netherlands
My wife descends from James Sutherland, Born 1740 Wick Caithness in Scotland. He was Corporal in the 2nd Bataillon of the Regiment Stuart in The Netherlands.
James was married 1773 in the city of Zutphen to John Ann Richie. Daughter of Robert Richie, Sergeant in the Compagnie of Colonel Munro, 1st Bataillon of the Regiment Stuart in The Netherlands. Her mother was Jan Gown of Gunn.
We're looking for Scottish ancestors of both James Sutherland and Robert Richie.
Anything you can give me would be very helpful.
Thank You,
Albert Ruijtenbeek
