Welcome to the Home of
the Pitcairn Family
It has been a dream of Sheila
Pitcairn to see the fruits of her labour published in a way that will
allow individuals from all over the world, to share in her project of the
Pitcairn Family. For over 40 years she has been researching and archiving
information relating to this truly remarkable family and thanks to the
advances in technology, she feels that the time is now right to share this
vast resource with all those who are interested.
Many will know that Constance
Pitcairn, really started the ball rolling when she published her works
entitled "The Fife Pitcairns", detailing the extent of the
Pitcairn Family, as known at that time. Her Family Trees have been the
start point from which the majority of the information contained herein
has been worked from. There have been many changes to the original and
countless additional information has been added to those
people who had the privilege to call themselves Pitcairn's throughout our chequered
This site does not just relate to
those Pitcairn's who lived and died in Scotland, far from it, the families
have been traced all over the world, they seem to have helped colonize
most corners of the globe, planting their roots and developing their
families as only the Pitcairn's know how. So if you are one of these globe
trotting Pitcairn's, possibly you just married one of them (it can happen
you know), or you are closer to home, then here is where you will find
your roots and maybe answer a few of those questions, which have been
troubling your generations.
We have not taken all the families
up to living decedents as it was decided that this information could be
viewed as too confidential without the concerned individuals consent.
There will no address or personal details disclosed unless expressly
stated by anyone. We hope that this site will allow people with a Pitcairn
interest, to contact each other and exchange what ever information they
want. It is not intended to be restricted to genealogy only, as it would
be nice just to keep in contact with one and another.
If you have new information or just
want further details regarding the individuals shown on the family trees,
please do not hesitate to Contact us and we will
try to get back to you as soon as practicable. This site will be kept up
to date with amendments and new information as it becomes available, so
keep checking back here for the latest news.
There would be little point in
posting a newsletter here as the subject is being well covered by people
more able than those involved in this project. May we suggest that you
visit (as often as possible please) the clan website at http://www.clanpitcairn.com,
this site is run by Colin Pitcairn from the USA and contains a huge amount
of information on the Pitcairn's. There is a Newsletter section, Family
History, Events and much more contained there, so keep it book marked. It
is hope that this site is up and running in time for the next gathering in
July 2002 in the USA, but his is very
dependent upon how quickly all the information can be converted for the
