Genealogy information

Two major historical incidents frustrate the genealogical researcher. Namely the burning of the original Menzies stronghold of Comrie Castle in a dispute with a neighbour (and with it the family papers) and the dispersal of the contents of the family strongroom when the estate was broken up and the castle’s contents sold. Thus the Clan Society unfortunately has little resources for those interested in tracing genealogical information. However, the Society does have in its possession a small collection of papers which it has acquired through various means, which may be useful to those interested in tracing family members. Please contact the Secretary of the Society to arrange access to these papers.

The Scottish Genealogical Society can recommend a professional researcher.
