That's the problem. Apparently the folks that originally picked the  
tartans just went to someplace like 'walmart' and picked different  
patterns. So we don't know the names of them. I'm not even sure if  
they're real tartans or just something made to be pretty like  
tartans. :(

I currently have a scan of one of them, and need to get the scan of  
the other three. I've emailed scotweb to see if they can help me  
identify it somehow, but I will check out these other sites. Thank you.
