The Red and White Book of Menzies: The History of Clan Menzies and Its Chiefs
Media: DATA CD - 1 CD (558 pages)
Author: D. Menzies
Other: 2nd ed.
The 19th century sought to provide a complete chronological account of the descent of great Scottish families from earliest times onward. This monumental work is best consulted for the period after the time of Lord Robert, Lord High Chamberlain of Scotland, ca. 1177-1266. It continues in increasing detail through the 62nd Chief, Captain Neil James Menzies, providing for each chief valuable information, both genealogical and historical. Additional material is provided on the tartans, rules for weaving the various Menzies setts, the various arms and armorial bearings of branches of the family, mottoes, war cries, badges, banners, pipers, bards, piobaireachds, and much other information nowhere else available. According to the clan society itself, though, considerable caution should be used when dealing with the earlier materials.
This CD consists of scans of the whole of the original book, which can be browsed, enlarged and printed if required. Please note: it is not searchable.
