Walter,

Ok, I believe that all Melvilles originated from Scotland. There are several clans of Melvilles running around.

I am a Michigan/Indiana area Melville myself. There is another set of Melville's in Southern Michigan that I am no direct relation to.

Try to back-track through your father, to grandfather, etc, and you will make a connection. Obtain a copy of your father's birth certificate and it should list his parents and their birth places.

Good luck!

John Melville
