Re: “Small county, big impact,” Issue #4-2010, p. 44

Royce MacGillivray

As I was perusing Issue #4-2010 of the Review, I came across a vaguely familiar name--that of Royce MacGillivray, Arts’59. As I read the article, I realized that I had heard of him through my late father's interest in geneology and his home county of Glengarry. I had seen Royce's name on Dad's bookshelf. His new publication, Dictionary of Glengarry Biography, piqued my interest, and I considered purchasing a copy. I was hoping that my great-great-great-grandfather, Rev. William McKillican, a Scottish Congregationalist minister who followed his congregation to Glengarry in 1816, might be mentioned as one of the pioneers of the area.

When I went to the Glengarry Historical Society's website and checked the list of those whose names are included in the book, to my great excitement I found not only the Rev. William, but also six more of my ancestors, including my own father. Needless to say, I am looking forward to receiving my copy of Royce’s book.
