Clan MacLennan
Newsletter 2nd Quarter, June 2003


News from the Chief

We now have a web site

On this site you can find out more about the MacLennan's past, present and future. And the links will help you search for ancestors and meet clan folk around the world - there's probably someone from the clan near you wherever you live or travel.

Our Clan is steeped in lore and history, the first recorded mention being in 1217.

The MacLennan family has flourished and we have members of the Clan Association's in all corners of the world. It is my dearest hope that we can unite MacLennan's throughout the world in a spirit of respect and co-operation to further the hopes and aspirations of all members.

The Clan motto of "Dum Spiro Spero" - "While I Breathe, I Hope" is an inspiration when we may be facing times of adversity and forms the backbone of the MacLennan approach to triumph.

I hope that you will enjoy having discovered our web site and we welcome new members to our Clan Association's from all four corners of the globe.

Clan Maclennan Usa, Inc.

The most exciting happening since our last newsletter is that we now have an International web site for Clan Maclennan. This due to the great efforts of David Jones of the Clan MacLennan Assn USA Inc. as well as efforts by Bruce McLennan and Max McLennan in Australia and the urging of our chief. Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Scotland, and England are now linked. Anyone who wants to know what is going on in any of the other countries or send e-mails or chat can now due it by a flick of the wrist.  The web site can be reached at http://www.clan.maclennan.com.

In other clan business we still have not been successful in finding an acceptable weaver so we still do not have our bolt of material. Marilyn Baumeister is still looking for a weaver.

Please look in our web site to see where their will be a clan rep at a Scottish Highland Game and come  see them and join Clan MacLennan USA Inc

To help reduce mailing costs the clan is trying to compose an e-mail list to eliminate some postage. If you are reading this it would be very helpful if you would fill out and forward by e-mail to winthescot@aol.com the following information:

Message from the President

As president I would like to express my and the Clan's deep appreciation to David, Bruce and Max for their efforts to put together the Clan MacLennan international web site. We now have a way to communicate with every Assn in the world . Not only that, we now can contact the Chief through E-mail or the chat room when there is a question regarding wear, history, genealogy, or any other subject, as well as to discuss in the chat room these same subjects and more with anyone in the world. We will now see just how small the world has become.

Scottish History

Scots in Hawaii

Scots have been coming to Hawaii since the 18th Century.  They came with Capt. Cook. Actually Hawaii's own Princess Kaliulani was half  Scottish . Her father, Achibald Scott Cleghorn  who arrived in Hawaii in 1851, was born in Edinburgh. He married  Princess Miriam likelike, sister of Queen Lililuokalani and King Kalakaua.

International Scottish News

The Lord Lyon Visits Stone Mountain Games

It has just been announced that the Lord Lyon, King of Arms, The Rt. Hon. Robin Orr Blair, LO, WS, will make his first ever appearance in the USA in his official capacity as guest of honour at the Stone Mountain Games in Atlanta Georgia on October 18 and 19, 2003.

The Lord Lyon is the sovereign's ultimate arbiter in all heraldic matters and is also responsible for determining the Chieftainship of the Scottish Clans.

The Scottish heraldic Executive is a separate jurisdiction from those in England and Ireland and, as such, the Court of the Lord Lyon has , since 1672 maintained its own record of all coats of arms borne in Scotland.

For Scots with Irish Ancestry one should contact the Lord Lyon in Ulster, Ireland.

Information for researchers

The MacLennan Clan recently extended its Web site to reach Clan connections worldwide. The new site is the result of co-operation between Clan associations in Scotland, USA, Australia, Canada and New Zealand. You will find it at: www.clan.maclennan.com

The site includes a "Beginner's Guide to Family Research" with resource links to over 6,000 research sites.

Clan MacLennan WorldWide would like to provide a facility by which your branch of our Clan could be matched up with other researcher's family trees. GenCircles.com has been selected as a central repository and matching service for our Clan for this purpose.

GenCircles is a non-profit site that has set up a database allowing family researchers to match their family history information with all others who have uploaded their own GEDCOM files to the GenCircles Global Tree. The "SmartMatching", as it is called, will match any individuals on your file with others who are in / on the Global Tree database. The great thing about this program is that it is also interactive, while protecting privacy. This means that if you are matched you can contact your match to further share your information if so desired.

There is no cost for using GenCircles. To find out more about the MacLennan database please visit our page: www.clan.maclennan.com/gen/database.htm and www.gencircles.com/users/maclennan

We invite you to take advantage of this wonderful facility by loading your GEDCOM file to GenCircles.

Please pass this message on to anyone else whom you know is interested in MacLennan family research.

Yours in Kinship,

David MacLennan
Clan MacLennan WorldWide Database Coordinator

THOUGHT FOR THE QUARTER

In honour of our fighting troops around the world as well as those who are still in Iraq, I would like to present you with these two thoughts.

It is the soldier...

It is the soldier not the reporter, who has given us the freedom of the press.

It is the soldier, not the poet , who has given us freedom of speech.

It is the soldier, not the campus organizer, who has given us the freedom to demonstrate.

It is the soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who allows the protester to burn the flag.

About war

War is an ugly thing, but not  the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse.

A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing he cares about more than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of  being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.
