Families with their roots in Aberdeenshire.

Please add the earliest head of the family to the list of Aberdeenshire Families on Geni below and link their profiles to the project. These should be male!

Famous or Notable People

Those people of note with connections to the county are listed below. Some of these connections are a little tenuous - counties like to lay claim to people of renown! Please visit Aberdeenshire - Famous People and add them to the listing there.

Emigrants

People from Aberdeenshire who went to the "New world" and were early progenitors in those countries. Where the earliest ancestor is known please add them to the list of "Aberdeenshire families on Geni" below if that was their roots, or to the appropriate county project.

Where the earliest known ancestor is the emigrant add them to the list below. In some cases if there is a project that covers them in detail please link the project - there is no point in duplicating the list.

Names with Bold links are to Geni profiles. Non-bold links take you to other biographical web pages.

How to add a link is explained in the attached document - Adding links to Geni profiles in projects.
