Dear All:

This thread is intended for posting of current URLS of other
web-sites that have information on the history or information
on the Surname or Clan. These web sites can include
archives, libraries, or just the Clan or Sept web site etc
So Clan Secretaries can keep this thread current or just
a interested member of the surname that has the
web site for their own family.

Please reply to this post and change the subject heading to
the name of the web site that is posting the news. Then keep that
thread current with news etc of your web site ( change of
address etc)

The benefit of having your own thread here is that you can
post the URL in newsletter or emails etc to newsgroup or
mailing lists etc. That way, any interested parties of the
Clan, Sept, or even a unique family group can always come
to your own web site for news and information.

The posting here will also be visible for an extended period vs
the short retention time of the mailing lists.

Please feel free to post this notice to other surname
message boards and mailing lists that would be
interested in this new message board.

Best Regards
John A Hansen

The Clan has an official association with a very informative website about the clan history, our current Chief, and Kismul Castle (the MacNeil Castle located in Barra, Scotland)

Thought I'd post something of general interest and say hi! Hoping others have signed up for this list - even though it is brand new.

Or try the castles website (pictures too):

Kisimul Castle sits on a rocky islet in the bay just off the coast of Barra.
Legend has it that this has been the stronghold of the MacNeils since the
11th century.

Hello All -

I have a small website up that focuses on resources for researching Clan MacNeil. It also includes information on our 'brick wall' Archibald McNeil born 1792 and many (but not all) of his descendants.

Please visit our site!
