This site is huge but can be very valuable for those researching individual family names. Browse the Message Board area (in the middle of the page, on the left) for some family names in which you are interested. (You may need to dig down several lelvels.) Remember to explore variations on the spellings of surnames in which you are interested; for example, McKown, McQuowen, McEwan. (Those recording births, deaths and marriages, for example, were by no means always consistent in how they wrote what they heard.)
