If it is "your" Donald, I suspect that Sarah Morrison may be related.

====================================

Regarding making contact with relatives, you should try writing to the local newspaper or contacting the local Family History Society-

http://www.inverness-courier.co.uk/

www.rosscromartyroots.co.uk/

There are probably other societies etc.

===================================

If your visit includes Edinburgh, you should visit Tegister House and New Register House, at the east end of Princes Street, facing the BALMORAL Hotel.

If you follow the "Cafeteria" sins, you will reach "The Dome" in NRH, which houses all the BMD Records, both the early ones from the Old Parish Registers from 1553 up to 1854; and the subsequent Statutory Registers.

Unfortunately today, you can only stare up at their serried ranks, there has not been public access for many tears.

At ground level in The Dome, there is usually an exhibition of related aspects.

There are also "taster" sessions of how to access those records on the Web - NO BOOKINGS, you have tpo queue up on the day and hope for the best.

Check the SP Web Site for fuller details.

Incidentally, the clock on the Balmoral Hotel is traditionally kept two minutes fast, to help would-be train passengers reach the Waverley Station on time.

Listen out for the "One o' Clock" Gun being fired at the Castle - there may be the occasional Royal Salute when it sounds as though battle has commenced.

And the Noon Signal on Nelson's Monument on the Calton Hill.

If flying in to Edinburgh, look out for the Royal Yacht Brittania; and the two Forth Bridges.

Note the various Festival Dates in the fall/autumn - "the toon gets fu' o' furriners frae a' pairts"

http://www.edinburghfestivals.co.uk/?gclid=CMPfsdSZ5LACFYwQfAodGw4B0Q

Inverness and all of that area are fine places to visit, about 3 hours driving north of Edinburgh..

Loch Ness and The Monster!

Remember to bring warm clothing, in North American terms, you are close to Hidson's Bay and the north of British Columnia, close to Alaska.
