Not just a list of names, however, as the book goes into some detail of where the names originate and examples of families. She has taken the period from 1750-1850 to select the names as it was during this period that mass emigration occurred. Many of these names and families have ended up in North America, Australia and all over the world." -SOG Bookshop Donaldson, Gordon. "Surnames and ancestry in Scotland."
