  1. knoxy10, if you are serious about your family history, I highly recommend having your DNA tested. I like you waited till later in life to dig into my ancestry. Aside from having your DNA tested, your best research tool is the internet! You can find what your looking for, books, articles, genealogy sites etc! If you do decide to test your DNA I highly recommend Family Tree! Good luck!
  2. macmanjim, I am 6'5" and I have several kilts from Sport Kilt and the length that fits perfect on me is 25" . I would try that first. I am also Irish/Scottish/Danish and you would represent well in any of the Irish district or Irish designs!
  3. Welcome from Colorado. I to started wearing them in my 40's........ better late than never!
  4. Congrats! I have several of Sport Kilts and really like them! The service I received was nothing short of Excellent! I am planning to get several more from them!
  5. To add to my comment above. Society has changed for the worse due to the way we interact with one another. I have watched how people have become bolder and bolder with criminal activity and disrespect due to society frowning upon self-defense. Basically you can't defend your honor or your person these days without having to worry about going to jail or getting sued! People are afraid of getting sued or going to jail because they defended their person from robbery or assault and now insult. I remember better days when you gave your insulter a black eye, bloody lip or both and sometimes even became friends afterwards. Or simply having the right to use deadly force to defend your home and family! There are some places here in the states and throughout the world where you still can do these things and not have to worry..... but it is becoming increasingly difficult to defend even your honor or dignity from insult because society has been brainwashed into believing that violence isn't the answer...... The only way to defeat violence of evil men is to deliver righteous violence in return! Our ancestors knew this and were better off for it! If that person that insulted you had been smashed in the mouth, he would have thought twice about doing it again ..... yet he knows that he can insult someone and get away with little more than verbal judo. If it was accepted that insulting others would get a justified physical response, you would have fewer insults! When you show weakness your enemy will take advantage of it! I'm probably beating a dead horse here but I thought I should elaborate upon my earlier comment.
