A McLaren Migration

"They were lumberjacks." That was the response, smiling and wide-eyed, whenever I would ask older family members about our McLaren ancestors. And that was about all they ever said.

Well, they were. They were lumberjacks and farmers in Canada, after they migrated from Scotland and before they began moving toward California, and this is at least part of their story.

Stroll down the links on the left. You can follow their journey, meet our other ancestors, see family photographs that were hidden in my mother's closet for so many years, and share some of the stories that emerged from my research.
