Sutherland wanderers
My branch of the Sutherland family moved from Duffus to Walls and Flotta , Orkney, at the turn of the 18th century and then travelled south to become fishermen on the Thames at the turn of the 19th century. I am now living in America and have recently established contact with Sutherland family members in Canada. I am determined to visit Duffus and Golspie later this summer pandemic or not!

Joanna, can you please email me on info@clansutherland.org.uk as I think I know the branch of the family you belong to.

Sutherland family
Hello. I was very excited to find this website. My grandfather was Walter Scott Sutherland and his father was Harry Sutherland. I recently did my father's ancestors DNA and it showed to have lineage to Scotland.

Good morning Daniel, I would be very pleased to discuss the DNA project with you. Can you please email me on info@highland-family-heritage.co.uk

Hello, I discovered a little while ago that my family line has many Sutherlands in it but the name died out with my great great grandmother Nina Ellen Sutherland. So what I was wondering is would I still be able to join if the name died out?

Hello Megan, of course you are eligible to join the Society. You have Sutherland ancestry like every other member. Yours just happens to have passed down through a female line.

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.

Hello Gregory, I suspect that you have an unsourced tree if you believe you have ancestors for Alexander. No-one knows who he was though I suspect I may have identified him. If so he was not a son of an Earl or anything like that.

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!
