 "McKerrells Return" in 2008?  Will it happen?
There have been muted mutterings about organising another "McKerrells Return" in 2008.  What do you think?  Would you attend?  Have your say here.
 We're Back!.
After a prolonged absence, thanks to the unannounced disappearance of our previous web host, we are back online. 

Unfortunately the Forum settings were also lost, so it may take some time to restore this function.

 "The McKerrells Return to Islay 2004" was a huge success.

Those who attended had a thoroughly good time. 

If you have some photos you'd like to share, please let me know
here so we can arrange it..






Welcome to the family history website for the McKerrells of Islay.  A number of McKerrell descendants have been researching the McKerrell surname on Islay for some time.     More

Islay is the southernmost of the Inner Hebrides of Scotland and has justifiably been named "Queen of the Hebrides".  McKerrells have been recorded on Islay since the mid 1600s and have possibly been resident there since the 12th century or earlier.    More

Do you have McKerrells from Islay amongst your ancestors?  If you think you might, visit the McKerrell Forum and leave a message or participate in the discussion.  Or just write to us here.  It doesn't matter if the name is spelled Mc or Mac, McKerroll or McKerrall,  or some other variation.  In the early days, how your name was spelled was often at the whim of the person writing it!    More

Thank you for calling in, we hope you enjoy your stay.  Please record your visit in our Guest Book.  This is very much a "work in progress", so please bookmark our site and come back and visit regularly. 

Beannachd leat and haste ye back!
