I have been writing about Family History for over twenty years and find the lives of our Pioneers really interesting. Having discovered from my DNA that I have 37% Scottish Heritage, specifically from the Outer Hebrides and the Isle of Skye, I found a whole new family line existing in my home state of Victoria.

This book tells of the connection of McNeill, McKinnon, McGillivray families to my Irish Herrick family which I have written about previously, the last time in 2017. After immigrating to Victoria in the 1850s, I found that each of these four families, together with several other ‘Mac families’ were pioneers of a small town in northern Victoria called Pyramid Hill, a town which was open to selection in the 1870s.

My story covers several other areas of Victoria telling how these migrants integrated into a strange new way of life using knowledge and determination they gained through enduring harsh, life-threatening conditions in their own country of Scotland.

There are many more of these families that I have not managed to include, but hope that I have given a fair indication of what all Australian immigrant families managed to achieve.

This book is fully indexed.
