Elvis Roots in Scotland, UK

A remote Scottish hamlet is the ancestral home of Elvis Presley, it was claimed last week. Researcher Allan Morrison says Elvis is descended from blacksmith Andrew Presley who lived 300 years ago in Lonmay, Aberdeenshire. Their son, also Andrew, emigrated to North Carolina in 1745. But not everybody in the village is impresssed. Jim McCue, bar manager at the village hotel, said: "The Scottish Tourist Board brought in an Elvis impersonator for photos yesterday and I'm sure there'll be more. I wish it had been Jimi Hendrix."
