Menzies Family Research

The Menzies Clan Society has in its possession a small collection of papers, acquired through various means, which may be useful to those interested in tracing family members and genealogical information. Unfortunately these resources are limited due to two major historical incidents. Namely the burning of the original Menzies stronghold of Comrie Castle in a dispute with a neighbour (and with it the family papers) and secondly the dispersal of the contents of the family strongroom when the estate was broken up and the castle’s contents finally sold at auction in 1919.

A project is currently being planned to collate all our historical information and this may be available by 2020. Active Members can access more information on Clan Menzies Genealogical Projects, Archives and Photographs in the Members Private Area
