Clan MacMillan Origins
The Clan MacMillan traces its origins back to the very beginning of modern Scottish history, when the traditional tribal societies of the Gaelic speaking Celts were being supplanted by the conquering Normans from the south.
The Clan has been traced back to King MacBeth, the last of the Celtic kings, who reigned for seventeen years.Malcolm Can More's son Alexander I (reigned 1107-1124) appointed the Culdee clergymen Cormac, a great-great-grandson of MacBeth, as the first diocesan Bishop of Dunkeld. It is from this Cormac that MacMillans descend. Through Cormac, MacMillans may claim both royal and Celtic Spiritual heritage.
There has been renewed interest in holding a family reunion July 30 to Aug 1 of 2011 so a merry band of cousins got together to get the caber toss going (ball rolling).
Joe Meskas, Dana MacMillan and I have been working on updating contact info but need your help with the list.We ask that you make corrections to your info where necessary and provide info on your family members (kids, grandkids etc) for the family tree we are making.We have lots of info on our past relatives but not much on the generations going forward.
Like reunions of the past we will be having a breakfast and dinner: pot luck or catered not sure yet.Pricing has yet to be determined.We are also considering a souvenir for all to take home.A golf tournament is in the planning stage, some family games (baseball, Crazy Scots) and of course chatting by the fire pit in the evening.The tentative location of the event will be at our home in Agassiz, BC.Visit www.district.kent.bc.ca for more information about our area.
