I have been searching my family roots for many years.I live in New York .My dad was born John Henry Hyland ,born in 1907 in n.y.,my grandfather ,John Henry Hyland, was born 1867 in n.y.,my g grandfather ,John Henry Hyland was born in scotland.I found this info on my grandfathers death certificate.I always thought Hyland was an Irish name.Is it?My grandfather was presbyterian.It is a mystery to me ,but on my father's birth certificate it said he was born in N.Y.C..I suspect that my great grandfather was born in SCOTLAND and that my grandfather was born in New york city.I wish I knew what town he came from in SCOTLAND.appreciate any info on location of Hylands in scotland and any other info that you would share.
