This genealogical chart traces the Auld family line back to the earliest Auld to arrive in America, James Auld: born in Ayrshire, Scotland, into the MacGregor clan which was forced to change its surname. It was researched and compiled by my son, HB Scott Auld III, and my sister, Jeri Lynn (Auld) Harness.
The header at the top of each page reflects my Scottish roots.
The symbol on the lower left is the heraldry Coat of Arms for the Clan MacGregor, from which the Auld family is believed to be descended. The Gaelic around the belt surrounding the lion translates as "Royal is my Race." The background for the clan Coat of Arms is that of the white Saint Andrews Cross on a blue field, which is the flag of Scotland.
The grave above on the right is that of Rob Roy, one of the greatest and most defiant MacGregors. The text to the left of the gravestone explains the 1617 Act of Scottish Parliament outlawing the Clan MacGregor, from which the Aulds are believed to have sprung when the MacGregors were forced to change their surname to several others.
