McKinnon Family History

Pictures, Stories, Lineage, and resources



My maternal family consists of two separate lines of McKinnons.

Maybe they're yours, too!

These McKinnons are an endless source of intrigue. They have survived shipwrecks, struck gold in the Yukon, outmaneuvered Nazi torpedoes, and even made the paper for mailing the world's longest letter. Their stories are incredible, heart-warming, and tragic. They emigrated from Scotland to Canada to the US starting in the 1700s. The bulk of my research has been done on their time in St. Peter’s Bay, PE and Boston, MA between 1800 to present.

I created this website to share my research, resources, and maybe net some new cousins in the process. Even if your family members are not McKinnons, if they are from similar areas to my people, you may find my research helpful.
