'Key issues for a Clan Gunn history' - access

I thought people might like to know that copies of Key issues for a Clan Gunn history can be accessed at  - the British Library; the National Library of Scotland; the Department of History's library in the School of History, Classics and Archaeology, University of Edinburgh; Wick Library; Caithness Family History Society's library; Timespan Museum's reference collection (Helmsdale); the Genealogical Society of Queensland; the Society of Australian Genealogists (New South Wales) and at the Genealogical Society of Victoria.

I will place further copies next year. I am very aware that Canada and the USA require texts in institutions similar to the above.

Scottish independence referendum - 'Yes' now ahead in one poll

Just in case people are not looking at my website I thought I should point to my blog there - - where I have several entries discussing the historic Scottish independence referendum which will be held this month. The key points are that the 'Yes' vote for Scottish independence is now leading in one poll (albeit by a margin of error) and the momentum is with the 'Yes' vote.

Scotland may well become an independent country again...

13 October 

More recent polls put 'No' back in the lead, but generally in the 'margin of error' land.

For a humorous view of the issue see

Clan Gunn blog; 20,000 + hits

The hits and audience for this blog show something tangible about the Scottish diaspora, especially to those with a Clan Gunn interest. (The 8 June 2014 figures for 17,500 hits are in brackets.) The top five countries are -
  1. USA - 5,371 (4824)
  2. UK - 3938 (3017)
  3. Canada - 3629 (3509)
  4. Australia - 1529 (1322)
  5. Germany - 1158 (963)
The main change is that Canada, which was second, has changed places with the UK.  The USA dominance in Clan Gunn issues is obvious.


And don't forget to go to for all the new information I am adding. The blog page is - recent entries have included discussion on the Scottish Independence referendum, the Clan Gunn tartan, the origin of Clan Gunn and the Clan Gunn's Orkney islands origin myth.
