Four McClelland Generations (photo taken in Nelson, B.C. 1958)

Welcome ...

The genealogy bug struck in 1995, soon after our McClelland grandparents celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary. Since then, we've conversed with numerous relatives and expanded our research. This web site includes key descendant lines from Ireland, Scotland, England, Netherlands, and Canada (Alberta, British Columbia, New Brunswick and Quebec).

Some of the more frequent surnames covered include : McClelland, Taylor, McKinlay, Berry, van Schilt, Carrier, Steeves/Stief, Stiles, and Turmelle.

We'd be pleased to hear from other researchers of these families ... and should you be so inclined, you can also contribute new information by using the "Suggest" tab displayed when viewing each individual.
