Garthbeg Coat Of Arms

The Lost Families of Stratherrick, Strathnairn, and Dunmaglass, Inverness-shire, Scotland

These pages are dedicated to the memories of the families of Stratherrick, Strathnairn and Dunmaglass.  The Fraser,  McTavish,  MacGillivray and other families lived and died in this remote area of the Scottish Highlands.  Many of these individuals were prominent in the fur trade in North America, becoming the fur barons of that era.  Numerous families emigrated to Canada, the United States, New Zealand, Australia, and South Africa.  Information pre-1800 is for the most part very sparse.  We all have our genealogical "brick walls",  and these pages are dedicated to solving the mysteries.
