Ancient MacAuslan- Buchanan – Gilbert Genealogy
This history comes the ancient great books written at the end of the first

the part he played in slaying many of the Viking royal family. He rendered his
service as a warrior to Malcom II, King of Scotland. He exhibited great bravery

The Gibson’s, MacAuslan, Buchanan, along with many other descendants of Auslan O’Cahan, returned to
their ancient homeland of Northern Ireland in the early 1600’s. Their
descendants were there for over 100 years, when they began the great migration
to America in the early 1700’s. The first wave started in 1717, and lasted about
60 years.

I hope this helps to connect some of our Ancestors. Please note the change of my email address. Also you might want to do a search on Clan Buchanan as it is the more recent times name for Clan MacAuslan.
