About the CLAN MACMILLAN SOCIETY OF AUSTRALIA
The Clan MacMillan Society was founded in 1983 and aims to foster kinship between members of the MacMillan Clan and the various Septs. There are a number of family names that belong to the Clan and they include MacMillan, Macmillan, McMillan, McMullan, McMullen, McMullin, Millen. There are 204 spelling variations known. Associated Sept names include Bell, Baxter, Brown, and Walker.
Our Clan Chief, George MacMillan of MacMillan and Knap lives at ‘Finlaystone’, Langbank, which is 30 kilometers west of Glasgow. Clan MacMillan members visiting Scotland are welcome to visit the Clan Centre at Finlaystone. The Clan Centre employs a historian and genealogist, Graeme McKenzie, who is coordinating the work of the Clan Centre, managing the archives of the Clan, and through
Project MAOL (MacMillan Ancestry On Line) he is producing a data base of Clan genealogical information. His assistant is Pauline Simpson.
Our Clan Society belongs to the Victorian Council of Clans and Scots Victoria. Members attend various Highland Games providing information to interested people. The main gathering of the Society is usually in October when we have our Annual General Meeting in Melbourne. It is an opportunity to compare family trees and exchange ideas about filling the gaps. Members outside Melbourne may not be able to always attend but we keep in touch through our Quarterly newsletter as well as letters and phone calls. Annual fees are $15.00 per person or family.
We would welcome your membership of the Clan Society, and are always interested in new ideas and approaches. As the Society is a national organisation we are appreciative of any names we could contact in rural Victoria or other states or territories.
