This website is maintained by Lynn McAlister. I have an MA in Scottish History from the University of Aberdeen and am a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland (FSA Scot). I have been studying Macalister history since 1997, when I was appointed clan historian for the Clan McAlister of America. I am also one of the historians for the Clan MacAlister Society and I am involved with the Clan Centre in Kintyre.
I live with my husband, adult son and a very old German Shepherd dog, and work as a reference librarian and genealogist. I am currently working with the Friends of the Argyll Papers to transcribe the Dewar mss., which contain a great deal of information about the Kintyre Macalisters.
