I have been researching my family tree for over thirty-three years and a member of Clan Hunter. In 2015 I registered the surname Hunter with the Guild of One-Name Studies and this blog will be my goal to share my research, photos, and as the clan's travel agent 2017 I will be adding our Clan Hunter Gathering 2017 which was very special because our Clan Hunter's 30th Laird participated in the opening of the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo at Edinburgh Castle August 5th, 10:30 p.m. with her clansmen.
