Hello Heather. I am out of "Origin & History of the Ancient Kilgour". However, the Bethel Historical Society of Bethel, Maine, did have copies left and the price was reasonable. I suggest contacting them. If that is unsuccessful, I could make up a CD or send you an enormous file was soon as I finish another little revision. My records from Kilgour's in Scotland begin about 1800 and go back. If you can get back that far contact me again and I may be able to help. If you have any male Kilgore's living in your family, I would suggest doing a y chromosome dna test. There is a Kilgore group at Family Tree DNA of Houston and you can probably determine which ones your closest to. At aboput 20-28 generations we are all at a probability of about 96-100% of having a common ancestor. This is about when the Kilgour surname began. There is one Kilgour in Scotland and two born in Ulster than have tested and the linkage is clear enough. Roy E. Killgore
