This is to advise the semi-annual update of the Sutherland Family Tree is now completed and posted on the Internet. If you should have any marriages, births, deaths, links, etc., to report, to be recorded in the Sutherland Family Tree, kindly advise me at [email protected] and I will happily ensure they are recorded in the next update in the spring of 2005.

The Peter Sutherland b 1761 is a large file. Peter went to Nova Scotia so his story is mainly overseas.
