This website began in July 1997
as a personal genealogy page but has evolved into a site focused
on the overall genealogy of the Orkney Islands of Scotland.
Its ultimate scope is all Orcadian surnames from all of the
islands. I have also included some general data and
background information on my family including my personal
genealogy research. All the data can be freely downloaded
for non-commercial purposes.
I thank everyone who has
visited this site and provided encouragement for its continuous
expansion. I welcome all suggestions and will add additional
data as time allows based upon reasonable requests. I am
also happy to include other contributors' data and website links.
