His name is James. Lives in Fife, near Forth of Firth Scotland I believe. Check with the Killiin Historical if you have trouble. I Spoke to the Clan chief Jame MacNab while in Killin in June. The MacNab chief cemetery is in Killin. i’ve been told that we were banned from scotland, put on a ship to america, Many of the Scot’s were forced out of Scotland before and after the Clearance in 1746 but I beleive the MacNab’s left for a different reason. The Clan chief would be better qualified to speak than I. the mac was dropped, Not so sure about that. and the extra b was added. Like i said, im just trying to find confirmation on this. Anything would be greatfult appreciated.

    One of the MacNab Clan chief’s gave a sick son to one of my McVean kin in Killin. They have been close ever since. If you have trouble searching and getting info. on them get back to me. I should be able to help a little more. I found out the hard way to use a .UK or .Co in stead of .Com. especially on a Google search. You will get a very different results.
    Good Luck. Your friend David McVean Cloquet MN. USA dwmcvean@q.com or dwmcvean@aol.com
