This site provides information on Blair genealogy in general and the roots and history of
my Blair ancestors who emigrated from Scotland to Vermont and New Hampshire in particular. Blair Genealogy
consists of the following sections:
My Blair Family
My ancestry dates back to Stirlingshire Scotland, in the early 1700s. My earliest
confirmed Blair ancestor is John Blair born 1720 in Kippen, Stirlingshire Scotland.
The first of our Blairs to come to America was John's son, Robert Blair, who came to
Vermont in 1785. His nephew Peter Blair, my gr-gr grandfather came to Vermont in the 1830s.
We have found letters from Robert's father, John Blair, and other Blair family members in
Scotland to Robert in Vermont, dated between 1786 and 1816.
A sub-site of Blair Genealogy, providing information on Blairs of Vermont. This site currently contains Blair
census data for 1790 through 1860, Blairs in the Civil War, Blair Vital Records, and Blair Cemetery Information.
A sub-site of Blair Genealogy, providing information on Blairs of
Scotland. This site currently includes searchable databases containing information on Blairs from
the Old Parish Records and the 1841 through 1871 Scotland censuses. These
databases contain almost 35,000 Blair records.
This section of Blair Genealogy has been added to the website for those who would like to share their
Blair Family Trees with others. If you have a Blair Family Tree or other Blair information you
would like to post to the website, please contact the webmaster.
Anyone who submits a family tree will be given full credit for their work. Any questions concerning the family
information will be directed back to the submitter.
Other families that are related to my Blair line. Currently includes McLuckie, O'Hara, and Gilfillan families.
Links to other BLAIR sites
My ultimate goal is to make Blair Genealogy the most comprehensive website for information on
Blairs. But to do this I will need your help. If you have any information on Blairs, such as:
- Vital Records (births, deaths, marriages, burials)
- Bible Records
- Cemetery Records
- War Records
- Newpaper Articles
- Business Directories
- Family Histories
- Family Trees
- Other Blair Information
and would like to contribute this information to Blair Genealogy, please contact the
webmaster. I will continue to update this site as I get new information.
I hope that other Blairs, descendants of Blairs, and those who are familiar with Blair families find this information
helpful and can fill in many of the missing branches of the Blair family tree.
