My Family's Tartan

I have accepted a challenge from Dorothy over at You Did What to find out my ancestor's Tartan.

What I found out was that I am Irish (on my mom's side,which I knew!) and my husband's family is Scottish.

My clan names are: (I have 4 to choose from!) Brown, Douglas, Lamont, and MacMillan.

The Brown Tartan is this:(Irish National)The Douglas Tartan is this:
The Lamont Tartan is this:
The MacMillan Tartan is this:WOW!!!

Now, for my dh's family tartan.

The Terrell family is from the Mackintosh clan.

The Mackintosh Tartan is this:
NOW...Do I get to choose which one I like the best? Or should I research and see which one is actually the correct one? I think that I will just pick the one I like best!!! LOL

Somewhere my Aunt has our lineage and she was supposed to have traced it back to Mary Queen of Scots!! I have no idea if that is true or just folklore among our family!!!

At any rate, it is fun to see these!

Thanks for the link, Dorothy. :)

Ooh, I really like the greens too. I am looking forward to checking mine out too (although we're not Scottish . . . !)
