Re: AGM

The games' website only seems to have tickets for Saturday up for sale at the moment, but it doesn't seem to work. With so few saying they're coming, reserving a block of rooms is difficult, as we can't tell the hotel how many. The games people did supply us with a list though: The Menger Hotel is d...

Re: searching for relatives

I think you'll eventually get an answer here (it is a tad slow), or a request for more information at least. But you'll get a much quicker response on our facebook group. It is located here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/cmsna/

Re: Permission

I believe you'd need to contact the Standing Council of Scottish Chiefs. It is my understanding that they handle such licensing matters, though I could be wrong.

Re: What Tartan in 1780?

I seriously doubt he'd have worn a "clan" tartan, or possibly any tartan at all considering the act prohibiting the wearing of highland attire was still in effect. If he did wear any, it'd most likely have simply been something locally produced that he liked and/or could afford.

Sorry. I don't recognize it off the top of my head, and unlike for shields, I'm not aware of any ordinaries covering crests that allow you to search based off of design. All I can suggest is going through Fairbairn's, and look at the entries for names related to the area in question. You could also ...
