Thank you for pointing me in the right direction.  Your website is brilliant.  You must have spent a lot of time on it.  Its very interesting and informative. 
Take care,  Regards

I recently have been researching the MacGregor history as I am building a website for my family which discusses our family heritage.  We are Griersons, and thus have strong ties to our MacGregor past.  I found your site recently and saw that you have a lot of information and some pictures which I would love to harvest.  I am curious as to the
copyright status of these items.  Would it be alright to use the pictures and copy some of the items such as the timeline?  Thanks in advance for your response and for the website.  It's great to see so many MacGregors who care to share their past.

Hi Hal
Thank you so much for sending the info on my ancestors.  I really appreciate it!!  I'm also wondering if I could contact you again on email with questions about my ancestry?  I
certainly do not wish to bother you but I really would like to find out all
I can.  Well again thank you for the info.

You have a very nice site.. Annie.

I have been reading about the Kelts and their Origins.
Although the Picts are not considered Kelts, they are related
people who seem to have a strong Keltic element.

It is accepted by some that the Picts have come from
Your account on an Assyrian connection or influence is
worthy of study as you pointed out:
Reliefs of Pictish warriors on Orkney gravestones have a decidedly
'Assyrian' appearance.
The older books do not mention this info.

Please, sir, may I ask the source of this  new info?
Thank you for your assistance.

 Hello Hal,

I am the President of Clan Maclean Atlantic (Canada), and am heading up the committee that is arranging his "tour". I couldn't find the information but found your excellent web site.  Also in you "Escape to Nova Scotia" there is a poster for MacLean Kilties.   I had heard of this regiment before, but was pleased and surprised to see the recruiting poster that you have in your article.

I hope you don't mind me contacting you, but while I was researching my family I found your very attractive page on the web and saw the information on John MacGregor who was in the 26th Cameronian Regiment.

May I congratulate you on an excellent website about the Clan Gregor.

I enjoyed your website.

I feel that I just have to drop you a note
to congratulate (and thank) you on such a comprehensive piece of work.   I
knew quite a bit of it, but there were numerous parts which were new to me.
I directed a couple of my colleagues who have none of our family heritage to
the site, and they have found it fascinating also.

Well done.

I have read with great interest your history of the origins of Clan Gregor on the internet,
particularly regarding the Picts, Celts and Dalriada.

I found the site where you have provided a lot of MacGregor history most interesting.

The Pict stuff is great.
Howard R. Grossnickle

I certainly enjoyed your article (about the Picts) and was wondering
if you could tell me some of the sources that you used.
  The rest of your website is extremely helpful.  Thanks for sharing.

Keep up your good work. You should have a picture and bio of yourself as a famous MacGregor!

Like the stuff on your site.

Wow, what an enormous undertaking.  You should have had it published as a book!  I think you missed your calling.
  Maybe you should have been a professor or a writer professionally.  Congratulations!
