Over 6000 Clan and Family Surnames.
The ideal introduction to clan and family history for everyone interested in their Scottish roots. 'Collins Clan Finder' is a comprehensive guide to over 6000 Scottish family names and their clan affiliations.
Beginning with an overview of the origins and history of 160 of Scotland's major clans and families, it also provides the most extensive index of sept names in print. Traditionally, septs were separate families who were allied to each of the major clans and whose surnames were associated with the parent clan or family. Using this index, readers will thus be able to identify the clan to which they belong, other surnames related to their own and the correct tartan to wear.
Other sections will provide the reader with:
- A database of tartans produced by individual mills.
- A calendar of clan gatherings and Highland Games across the globe.
- Explanations of how to wear Highland dress and its accoutrements.
- An outline of the chiefly retinue.
'Collins Clan Finder' is the perfect starting point for anyone wishing to trace their Scottish origins and will undoubtedly join the recommended library of standard reference works on Scottish clan history and genealogy.
