A Tribute to my Ancestors - And a Legacy to my Children

     Welcome to my Montross Lineage Page. I had received much needed data from many new found cousins, especially Irv Krause, Malcolm Haner and my dear friend Elizabeth "Betty" Mock. Thank you all, for without you, this page would be very incomplete. My Montross lines were from France. This line later migrated to Holland due to religeous persicution. There are several variations to the Surname; Montarrass, Montras, Montrass, Montrose, etc. I believe the information below is correct, but if you find any discrepancies please email me. I hope you find the information helpful to you, and do let me know if you have more that you would like to add.

     Please remember each bit of information found here, or elsewhere, must be researched and proven by weight of evidence, via you, the researcher.
