Hello,

After speaking with my Aunt and my dad, I found out my dad’s grandmother was Ellen Elizabeth Galbraith. Their great grandfather was Thomas Galbraith, he married Sarah Tate. I know Ellen Elizabeth Galbraith was born in England, but later married a Gillings and moved to Toronto.

I have tried ancestry.ca and several sites. I was trying to find my lineage of Galbraith. I can only get to my great great grandfather Thomas Galbraith. I do know from my aunt that we have Galbraith lineage, and that we are Scottish and Irish on the Galbraith side and English on the Tate side.

Hello Galbraith family. I am the son of LB, son of Edward Galbreath/Galbearth (b.1915), son of George Galbreath (b. 1880's).

One day I will have to come home to Scotland and meet the rest of my family.

LB

Been trying for years to find out my heritage and who I really am.

I know a little about my Grand Father and his mother. She was a Galbraith and put him up for adoption in Cape Town, shortly after his birth in 1916.

All other avenues have been dead ends, even so far as to try contacting the British consulate, here in SA and in the UK, for more information. But we are turned away everytime, the reason is not that there isn't information, but that the information CANNOT be given out to us???

My fathers Brother paid a private investigator to gather information on our family and our heritage, but he came back after a few months, gave back my uncle his money and said that he couldn't give out the information he had found.

I can research the Galbraith name and I can research my family as for back as my Great Grand Mother, my Grand Fathers Mother, but I cannot find any additional information on my family and who we really are.

Admin reply: Hello Craig,
Thank you for signing our guest book. We do have a lot of information about some of the Galbraith lines. Others we may not have as much. When members join Clan Galbraith Society, we try to ascertain from which DNA line the new member descends. We have a team that works with autosomal DNA and one that works with Y-DNA, which is passed father to son. If you have taken a DNA test and would like to join us and share your results with Clan Galbraith Society, we may be able to help you. You may also be able to help us make discoveries and knock down brick walls. Even if you have not taken a DNA test but know the names of your grandparents we may know of them I hope you will join us and that we can help.
Best regards,
Carol Galbreath Kiefer

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

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.
