The Elliot Clan Society is currently working on a large Elliot Genealogy Project. At this time, the Society is in the information gathering process, and would welcome your input.
NOTE: The Society does not provide “free genealogical research” or information gathering / providing.
The overriding objective of the Genealogy Project is to help Elliot Clan Society members in their research by electronically compiling the data of its members, worldwide. This will provide searching and linking capabilities.
For those interested in submitting your information to the Elliot Genealogy Project, (and yes, that includes Elliots, Elliotts, Eliots, Eliotts) you can submit your info as a PAF file. Please follow these instructions when submitting information.
If you don’t have genealogy software on your computer, you can also download and print a Family History form. These forms have been designed so that information is submitted in a CONSISTANT, ORGANIZED manner. Please remember that we have to input all this data!
You can submit information to the following people:
- Canada — Brian Elliott
- New Zealand — Margaret Laurenson
- United States — See the USA branch Genealogy Database project
As the above people are all working together, feel free to send them any info you have, whether or not you reside in their particular locations or not. The information will be shared.
If you are an Elliot Clan Society Member, you may send an e-mail to Brian Elliott (Canada) with your genealogical search request. Please be as specific and detailed in your information as possible, and please indicate your membership number! Also, be sure to include the words “ELLIOT GENEALOGY” in your subject line. In order for us to expand on this project, and to be fair to those who have spent countless hours researching and entering data, there is an expectation that you will also share your family history with the Society.
For those of you who are not Society members, the Society is still in the process of identifying how it will handle your requests. If you are interested in joining the Society, there are several regional chapters.
