Dear Clan MacLeod Posters:

Please bear in mind that the genealogical portion of the Clan MacLeod list and board should keep within the time frame of the clan system's being active in Scotland. This would be up through 1745-47, as the clan system was quashed following the Jacobite Wars.

Should you post genealogical queries to the board and find them no longer there, take a look at the MacLeod surname board, as they have likely been moved there, where they are more appropriate to the topic. If you have a varient spelling used in your post, it may be moved to a board that shares that spelling, if it exists; otherwise it will go to MacLeod.

This is not to say that the Clan MacLeod list and board are not for genealogical queries and posts. This is to provide a reminder that they are *clan* specific and not general in time and place. Their period is circa 1000 through 1747 and place is Scotland, Ireland, Europe in geographic nature. Think of those under the clan system and where they would have been, as such; where and when their Chiefs resided; origins of the name and time frame/locations descended from.

Remember that clan lists and boards are more inclusive than strictly Genealogy and History, but that there are guidelines as posted by John Hansen when he created the Boards.
