Just thought some might like to know that I have placed the genealogy of Chapter 10 - namely the family tree of the MacHamish Gunns of Killernan - on Ancestry. The support for it, though, is in the book; the tree is but an outline. The MacHamish Gunns are alive and well in various parts of the world, including those descended from Alexander Gunn of Badenloch's sister. The idea that line is extinct, which was one of the fallacies involved in the invention of the 'Clan Gunn Chief' , is just wrong.
The tree is called ''The Gunns: History, Myths and Genealogy' - the official MacHamish Gunns of Killernan line.'
I note that my 'The Gunns: History, Myths and Genealogy' now appears on Google search. This means you can raise the book (by entering the book's title) and then search within as much of it as Google search allows, or you can do a search for a name or place or whatever - say William Beag Gunn or Osclay Gunns - and results will appear.
Thought people might like to know I have placed 'The Gunns: History, Myths and Genealogy' as individual chapters (or so) on the below site. You will have to sign in to read, but that is quick, free and easy to do. The book is better laid out!
The site is the world's largest academic sharing site. It's strength is that if a person is researching in an area say, Scottish highland history, the site will recommend various papers / chapters related to that area for the researcher to use such as my Gunn chapters. As previously mentioned, my book will also soon be appearing in google searches.
I believe in open access for my book - it's the way to remove the current ludicrous 'Clan Gunn' myths which masquerade as history.to edit.
