Clan Galbraith Guestbook





Comments:
Hello, I have not done a lot of research on my family line, but I have many relatives who have. I am descended from George Galbraith, shown below;
George Galbraith
Birth
17 February 1812
Glasgow City, Lanarkshire, Scotland
Death
31 December 1840
St. Kitts, Leeward Islands, West Indies
Burial
1 January 1841
Leeward Islands, West Indies

I have not personally verified the information, but I look forward to learning more about Clan Galbraith.

Admin reply: Hello Dennis,
Thank you for signing our guest book. Your George sounds like he would have had an interesting story to tell us. We would love to learn about how and why he went to St Kitts. We do have some information about Galbraiths in the Caribbean in our library but I am not sure if your George is specifically mentioned. If you join Clan Galbraith Society our DNA and Genealogy team may be able to help you learn more.
Thanks again for stopping by,
Carol Galbreath Kiefer
President Clan Galbraith Society

I recently dug into my ancestry following the DNA kit. I had been told all my life that my great grandmother was 100% Cherokee Indian. Imagine my surprise when I popped up 40% Scottish and 0% Indian 😂 I found my tenth great grand father is Robert Galbraith circa 1590. I don’t possess the name due to Jane Gilbreath marrying into the Morrow family. I am still excited to find so many others and a resource available!

My maternal grandmother was a Galbraith and I have been able to trace her bloodline to Sir Arthur Galbraith (2nd of Gartonnel & 6th Chief) in Scotland. Ab Obice Suavier

I was born in Glasgow and still live here. I have a daughter but no son to carry on the name however my brother does have a son who lives in Majorca. I attended the 1981 gathering in Culcreuch with my parents. Culcreuch closes next year for refurbishment but there is no date for re-opening. I have traced my family back to the eighteen hundreds when they were in Islay.

Born outside of Philadelphia, Pa. Raised in a nice suburb even farther out from Philly. 1st heard of connection to Scotland as a teen. Never investigated it. Have a nephew who took a tour of England and Ireland (close) but not Scotland. Have a niece with documentation of lineage that looks like I am really part of the family tree of Galbraith. Very interested in learning more about what is real or just a story. I am the youngest surviving son of my father, so I'd best find out about this stuff before too late.

Aloha to all of my Galbraith 'Ohana!!
I am a descendent of George Galbraith who was from Down County, Ireland. He migrated to Hawaii & passed away in 1904 leaving behind a great legacy for all of his heirs. If anyone has watched the movie "The Descendents", the history of our Galbraith line almost mimics the story line of that movie. I look forward to meeting more Galbraith family members at our next Clan Gathering. The last one I attended with my family was in 2012 in Scotland at Culcreach Castle.

Admin reply: Hello Kevin,

My mother is a Galbreath, her father is James alfred Galbreath, his father is James Alexander Galbraith, his father is William Merl Galbraith, and his father is Calvin Henry Galbraith, that is far back as I have, I would like to find more can some one help?

Admin reply: Hello Neil,
Thank you so much for signing our guest book. I checked our library’s search engine for your line and I found at least two other members or former members with ancestors in common with you. If you would consider joining us, you will have access to our library as well. No sense in doing all your own research if we already have the information you seek. I hope you will consider joining us!
Best regards,
Carol Galbreath Kiefer

My dad was very proud to be a Galbraith, which he has passed on to me. We are one of five families is South Africa with the same surname, however, we are the only ones from Culcreuch lineage.

I may still be in South Africa, but my heart is in Scotland. Proud of where i have come from and am proud to pass it on to my kids.
