PCBG note on the Status of The 2015 Review
I am presently dipping-in and out of my review of The Montgomerys. The family starts in England (on Montgomery01), albeit with a Viking root, but most of the other pages in the Families Database relate to branches in Scotland & Ireland. Having 'filled a gap' with Hessilhead and developed Skelmorlie, both on Montgomery06, over the next few months I shall be working my way through the 'Genealogical History' book referred to below.
Notes on the sources.
The decision to include the Montgomerys within this series of reviews arose because I recently obtained a copy of 'A Genealogical History of The Family of Montgomery', compiled by Thomas Harrison Montgomery, published in 1863. My impressions of it are reasonably positive although it appears that Mr. Montgomery did not find anything that throws new light on the early generations. I may well yet discover other relevant useful sources for this family in the course of the Review.
