Glad to see some interest in the Lathan name. My line came to SC from
Antrim in Northern Ireland around 1788. Any help with Irish records about
James Leathan and/or his wife Peggy Waugh of Antrim, N.Ir.

If you subscribed to the regular list, LATHAN-L(a)rootsweb.com , your
message will be included in the digest version also. However, if you
send e-mail to the digest list LATHAN-D(a)rootsweb.com , only the
members of that list will receive your message, not the members
subscribed to the regular list. Hope this is not too confusing.
Thank you again for joining in on the conversation. I hope it will be
an inspiring, eye-opening (and fun) experience for all.
