While clans are based on bonds of loyalty rather than bloodlines, genealogy grows ever more important as generations move farther from ancient homelands. Understanding relationships to distinguished clan members enhances interest and understanding of history plus strengthen bonds to others located far away. With these thoughts in mind, the Clan MacLaren Society of North America (CMSNA) continues to devote time and energy into genealogy.
Current focus is cataloging and organizing the large collection of data in hand after the passing of CMSNA's Genealogist of long standing, Bob McLaren, early in 2020. A major portion of this effort is directed at the electronic records he compiled as follows:
Member submissions are, and will continue to be, welcome and encouraged throughout the work of preparing the CMSNA database. GEDCOM files are preferred but other formats can be accepted. For more information on how to send your submissions, contact the CMSNA Genealogist via the link on the CMSNA member area webpage ( near the bottom under "CMSNA contacts for CMSNA members" after login).
Disclaimer: CMSNA collects and archives DNA and family tree information to enhance knowledge and understanding of Clan MacLaren around the world. Members may request advice for where best to locate resources to conduct their own family research, but individual genealogy research services are not available.
