Hello

If you give me any names and dates that you know I’ll check my tree and get back to you. If your ancestors were travellers living in Caithness we are probably connected.

Hi, my grandmother lived in the caves as a small girl although she refuses to talk about it. My mum tells me as much as she knows about their history. I’m definitely related to the McPhee’s who resides in the caves although having very little luck in trying to build the family tree beyond my great grandparents due to lack of documentation and too many of them having the same name makes it even harder (lots of William John’s and George’s).

Hi everyone.

I've had my DNA tested. I am connecting to people who have the McPhee cave dwellers in their Ancestry. My mutual matches all have the same segment(s) in common with myself. The McPhee cave dwellers of Wick are the people in common with them all. Another name in connection with them is Newlands.
I unfortunately don't have any documentation in relation to them (other than the DNA), so I feel it's been an NPE, an error in my tree or perhaps a child was removed from their care.

EDIT: It appears to be on my paternal side, my dad has stronger matches to people with McPhee cave dwellers from Wick.

Hi All,

My other half and family are direct descendants from Mcphee, Williamson and Newlands who lived in the caves in Caithness. Cousins to McpheeMoray who posted earlier on this thread.

Liviani - my mother in law shows as a very distant match to your father gedmatch at 9.8cm around 5.5 Generation wise

It be great to hear from others and help expand the tree and family further or help you work out your ancestors.
