Dig up those old bones and get them dancing!

Change the two party system
so people against something like abortion
but for something like environmental protection never again get bigger and badder storms
and two bankrupting wars instead.

Forbes 1: Forbes of Forbes, Forbes of Pitsligo, Forbes of Tolquhoun
As with many other families, there are reports of earlier generations for this family but those before the 13th century are clouded by uncertainties and myth. TSP Forbes refers to mention of O'Connor or Ochonochor a temp Malcolm Canmore who r. 1058-1093 whose 3 sons were progenitors of the Forbeses, the Urquharts and the Mackays. TSP Mackay, Lord Reay also mentions that the Mackays are believed to share a common ancestry with the Forbeses. We hope to show the connection in due course, purely 'for fun' of course.
