Author: Hunter One-Name Study Info Blog

I have been researching my family tree for over thirty-three years and a member of Clan Hunter. In 2015 I registered the surname Hunter with the Guild of One-Name Studies and this blog will be my goal to share my research, photos, and as the clan's travel agent 2017 I will be adding our Clan Hunter Gathering 2017 which was very special because our Clan Hunter's 30th Laird participated in the opening of the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo at Edinburgh Castle August 5th, 10:30 p.m. with her clansmen. Find A Grave contributor #47833985 Being a travel agent since 1991 I am a SCOTSagent, BRITagent, and at the present have two group tours to Scotland in 2017. One is a Clan Hunter Gathering at Hunterston Castle given by Madam Pauline Hunter of Hunterston, 30th Laird of Clan Hunter.

Clan Hunter Gatherings

Have you every dreamed of seeing a Scottish castle in person? Especially, if you know that the castle was built by your own ancestors?

In 2014 I attended my very first Clan Hunter International Gathering at Hunterston Castle which was built c. 1107. Then in 2017 I attended another. Below are just a few of my photos from those wonderful days following in the footsteps of my Huntar/Hunter ancestors.

Huntar DNA Project

I am so excited to have the help of our Hunters working together and sharing their family stories, photos, data and even recently their DNA study.

Being a member of the Guild of One-Name Studies I decided to start a DNA project of my own for the Hunter Surname Study of DNA.

I asked for seven males and who would think I have those Hunter males already. Thank you to all who have decided to help me in this study to find our common ancestor to our ancestral home in Scotland.
