  2. I've just set up a new webpage for an ELDER surname study
    in the UK, subscribed with the ONE-NAME STUDY organization there
    at
    http://www.one-name.org/profiles/elder.html

    It even has an easy on/off user counter, and asks for the DNA webpage.
    Hope it helps us find more Scottish, Australian
    and other DNA participants, especially our own origins in Scotland!

    E-mail me anytime!

  5. Now I see a typo in my posting of the
    Elder Crest Motto for ELDER of Skye.
    Correcting the "One-Name Study" webpage.
    Should have a "u" not "a" in the motto,
    re-posting as:

    "Virtute Duce"
    meaning: "With virtue my guide"

  7. Today I received confirmation of the French-Canadian name Momeny/Montmeny from a 3rd cousin listed in my FTDNA FamilyFinder results!

    Montmeny References in my files and research notes on my webpages:
    Looking in my books "French Families of the Detroit River Region" by Denissen,
    I see his Joseph Momeny (entered as Montmeny) and Catherine Gagnier on page 852, and
    I see Joseph's father was Louis John-Montmeny b 1731 St. Valier
    bur 14 Aug 1798 St. Antoine River Raisin m Agatha Amable Prudhomme....
    Their daughter Mary Louisa married
    my 4th g-grandfather, Nicolas DROUILLARD (listed on same page).
