I haven't done much research, so I was wondering if anyone readily knew anything about the McCartney clan?

What I've gathered so far is that the progenitor of this clan was King Cormac McArt. Perhaps I should do a google search.

After reading what others have posted, I have to say that I have it easy in some regards.  My Scottish surname is only found in one place, so there's no real confusion as to the origins.  My family also kept fairly accurate records over the last two and a half centuries, the time spent in the US and Canada.  Go ahead, search around- you'll only find the name Keith in one place, and luckily it's easy enough to trace the Keith name back to what is now called clan Keith. smile.gif
From here until I state otherwise I'm not cliaiming to be a direct descendant.....
.....been traced back to the early 1700's as well, one German and the other of Welsh or (shudder!) English origin.

I'm kind of disappointed that in sharing the family history, you neglect to mention the most important and historic chapters in the Keith clan history....

[COLOR=BlueViolet]Just wanted to let you all know there's another Cameron in your midst! My gr-granpa Cameron came to Canada waay back when and eventually migrated over to Idaho where he met my gr-granma to be. I never knew my gr-granfather but I knew my gr-granma. She was a kind woman and sharp as a whip, even at an old age. Guess she had to be to put up with gr-granpa's fiery temper!
Some years later, when I was a teen, my family and I were able to go to Scotland and visit our cousins still left from my gr-granpa's family. He had many brothers and sisters. We stayed with his two youngest sisters who were very old. They lived in Keith! I know that one of my gr-auntie's had one leg shorter than the other and she was known as "Limping Lily". It was exciting to see the farm where they all lived at one time.
Since I've grown older and have learned more of my family heritage, the Camerons were supportive of Bonnie Prince Charlie. When I was small I used to be very romantic minded and would day dream about this bonnie prince. I always felt sorry for him and imagined that I would help him if I were alive in his day. Now I know where I get those strong feelings from!

I'm going to add Clan Henderson to the fray. It's a little too early in my newfound Heritage obsession for me to have done much research about my personal family line- I am proud of what I have dig up about Henderson or "MacEaunrig" in Gaidhlig.
I plan on participating in the DNA project on the Clan Henderson Society of America and Canada site- hopefully there's been enough of us involved to find some matches.

I'm coming late to this party. After availing myself of the resources referenced here, I'm astonished to find that my maiden name Riddle is actually a clan name - albeit a teeny tiny one, though quite old apparently. It's a "district" tartan, though? Red Roxborough. Which is really ironic since the town closest to me now here in North Carolina is Roxboro.

Also, if I went by regional association, the area where my grandparents actually grew up (Motherwell), I'm affiliated with the clan of an overseas friend - Dalziel. He's got a purty tartan!

Which would be more "kosher" so to speak, for an affiliation? Both ties seem rather loose.

My mother's side gives me McLellan, McMullen, and Morrison but that all gets somewhat messy as I'm not sure where the actual bloodlines go - there's some Asher mixed in and I'm not even sure what nationality that is - it's not Scottish! wink.gif

My paternal grandfather is Mexican, but of direct French descent. My mom's maiden name is Moreno-Canard, lol.

I'm a MacDuff and Lamont on my Mother's side of the family -- Campbell on my Father's side.
I'm married to a MacGregor (Father) and MacNeill of Barra (Mother).

Still working on all of the Clan Histories for the family.

Same here as far as coming in kinda late...

Surname McCool. My ancestors began trickling to America from Co. Londonderry , NI, in the early 1700's. The trail stops in NI around 1695-ish. There are still some relatives there, not far from the old home place.

Knowing that my father, uncles and other McCool kin, called themselves "Scotch-Irish", and knowing that those old pioneers were Quakers - it appears they were likely descended from planted Scots. They owned their own home (it still stands by the way!) and a large parcel of land in NI. My cousin there, always feeling the McCools/McCooles were inherently Irish, chewed on that a bit, then came to the conclusion that the Scottish connection is most probably right. We just haven't found the documentation, if there's any to be found at all.

As for clan connections? I really don't know. I've found a varied mix of information both from Ireland and Scotland and NONE match up.

On the Scottish side, there seems to be an association to the McDonalds and McDougals. Then, there's clans McColl, and McCoul. ?? On the Irish side...a good number of McCools but...that info is also wishy washy.

Maybe we were just SOOOO UNIQUE (most likely hard headed *heheheh*) that we just couldn't be bothered. rolleyes.gif On the other hand, maybe we were "R U N N O F T". laugh.gif

On a positive note, we do share the name with that legendary hero, Finn McCool. *hence my forum name*. rolleyes.gif

If anyone knows anything about the McCool/McCoole/MacCool bunch, I'd love to compare notes.

PS: Hi Rindy! wink.gif

My fathers mother was Ola Mae Cathcart, so that was an easy one. My mothers Mother was Fleta LaVera Legg and as it turns out the Legg family is a Sept of the Bruce Clan. Though my loyalties are with the Cathcart Clan I am not opposed to being of a sept of the Bruce, though I do not wear anything of the Bruce Clan instead I am studyign all I can about Cathcart and that proud lineage. I am also a staunch supporter of Saor Alba, which is a group desiring Freedom for Scotland. I am pro-Scottish and proud of the heritage I have for the Cathcarts have been involved with many treaties and such since the 11th century,

A little late to the conversation (10 years), but regarding Ceciliastar1's comment, Adams is a red hearing. It is based on our Polish name from our grandfather's side which was something like Adamczyk. What I heard is it got changed at Ellis Island to Adams. So... Adams is a dead end. Brady is our Welsh/Irish connection.
