BOOK - The Lochaber Emigrants to Glengarry
By Rae Fleming, Editor
Published by Natural Heritage / Natural History, Toronto, 1994. [new printing by Dundurn]

For anyone interested in the history of the Scottish people in Scotland and North America, this book is essential reading. In Canada and the United States today, there are tens of thousands of descendants of Highland Scots who left Lochaber around 1800 to settle in Glengarry County, in Ontario, Canada... then known as Upper Canada.

This book deals with the conditions in Scotland before migration, settlement experiences in Glengarry, and the spread of these Scots-Canadians from Glengarry to the American and Canadian wests.

There are fur trade and Metis connections, and even ties with the Caribbean. As well as colourful articles, this book contains a wealth of genealogical information, family trees, maps, photographs and other illustrations.

Reviews:
  • "The Lochaber Emigrants to Glengarry is a welcome addition to our knowledge and appreciation of the trials and tribulations, the joys and triumphs, that our Scottish forebears experienced in their determination to build a new home in a far distant country. My ancestors, also from Lochaber, came to Canada as the nineteenth century was being ushered in, but they chose Cape Breton, not Glengarry, as their destination. However, the story of the Glengarry pioneers parallels closely that of the new arrivals in Cape Breton Island and I am deeply appreciative that this body of work will serve to enrich our knowledge of the events of that period and our understanding of the rich cultural diversity that constitutes the Canadian character." - Flora MacDonald, Retired Minister of Parliament, Canada


  • "This important selection of articles promises to open up new territory for research in family kinship linkages in nineteenth-century Canada." - Donald Smith, University of Calgary, Calgary, Alberta
