McAlpin Christian Heritage

This is  our 2007 trip to the Mother Land Scotland. It was the first time for Esther and I, and my Father and Mother to visit. We found that our heritage was rich with Christian roots that go back for centuries. Who you are can often be traced to who was.  

Thank God for Godly parents.

Blessings, Barry

Coat of Arms

 

Bill remembers his father, Otis McAlpin, telling  us that our  family came from a King in Scotland.  This story had been passed down for generations.  He told us that six brothers came from overseas to find a new life in the young American nation. In 1980, Grandad McAlpin placed Burger King crowns on our two children, Karen and Barry, before sitting them to a meal he had prepared.  He told them to always remember that they have royal roots.

The McAlpin family are proud of their ancestry and especially those who have embraced Christianity. Bill McAlpin’s web site would not be complete with out his McAlpin Coat of Arms. Both Bill and Barry joined the McAlpin Clan in the USA and we attended a Scottish Reunion in Gatlinburg.   Information about the clan can be found at http://www.macalpineclan.com/

Bill and Winnie accompanied Barry and Esther for a trip to Scotland in March 2007, to find our ancient family roots. King  Kenneth McAlpin  built a stone church for the relics of Saint Columbia at Dunkeld.  Dunkeld had emerged as a centre of Christianity during the 7th Century, when Saint Columba came over from Iona. In the 9th Century, Kenneth McAlpin Kenneth McAlpin , the first King of Scots, made Dunkeld head of the church and capital of the newly formed  union of the Scots and Picts. Information about Dunkeld Cathedral can be found at http://www.dunkeldcathedral.org.uk/brief_history_of_dunkeld.htm

Records of Scotish ancestry were almost entirely  destroyed during battles with those who dominated the political scene.  Family records were lost  with the burning of churches and records.  The connection between our immediate family and Scotland has  been documented.

However, our McAlpin genealogy in the USA can be found in a book entitled MCALPIN(E) GENEALOGIES 1730-1990 by Doris McAlpin Russell.  This book is also on the bookshelves in Scotland and in it you will find our direct line from Alexander McAlpin.

The Stone of Destiny,  believed by some to be the stone on which Jacob slept during his heavenly encounter. For a better understanding of the importance of this stone see the following links:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stone_of_Scone

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stone_of_Destiny_(film)

We found our inquiries in Scotland concerning the Stone of Scone to be very interesting.   One person claimed that the “real” stone was located very close to the Dunkeld Cathedral area and it has its protectors.  All Kings and Queens from King Kenneth McAlpin to Queen Elisabeth have been crowned on the Stone of Destiny.

The Stone of Destiny was returned to Scotland by England in 1996 and is now quarded at the Edinburgh Castle. We visited Edinburgh Castle and saw this most interesting stone.  No photos or video were allowed in the room, which was tightly guarded. This was a real disappointmet to us and especially me.  I have  been capturing events in journals, photos and video for 51 years.

The latest in the saga of the Stone of Destiny can be found here http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2010/apr/30/stone-scone-targeted-thieves Other information about King Kenneth McAlpin and our Scotland Trip in 2007,  will be presented for your perusal at a later date.  In the meantime, just ask Bill or Barry, they are delighted to talk about our experiences in Scotland.

While we believe it is important to know your family roots, it is even more important to know that you are rooted in Him.  Col  2:7  “Rooted and built up in Him, and stablished in faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.”
