Elvis' Scottish Roots

Researchers have traced rock legend ELVIS PRESLEY's ancestry to Scotland.

Author ALLAN MORRISON traced the BLUE SUEDE SHOES hitmaker's family back to a tiny village Lonmay in Aberdeenshire, for his book THE PRESLEY PROPHECY.

Morrison discovered records showing ANDREW PRESLEY married ELSPETH LEG in Lonmay in August 1713. Their son, also named Andrew, became the first Presley born in American, in North Carolina in 1745.

Morrison says, "I started looking into Elvis' past in 1998 when I heard rumours of him coming from Scotland.

"I was able to trace his family tree and when it got back to Lonmay it was like striking gold."
