Scottish Clan And Family Encyclopaedia

EDM number 308 in 2017-19, proposed by Patrick Grady on 12/09/2017.
Categorised under the topic of Cultural heritage.

That this House congratulates St Kilda Holdings Ltd, based in the Maryhill area of Glasgow, for publishing the third edition of The Scottish Clan and Family Encyclopaedia which was written and edited by George Way of Plean and Romilly Squire; notes the third edition is a substantial update by the original authors aided by leading academics in Scottish history and contains new scholarly articles as well as the histories and crests for 346 clans, which is 200 additional crest designs; further notes Scottish clans, from the Gaelic clanna meaning children, are Scottish kinship groups which historically formed the basis of highland society and which retain an official structure recognised by the Court of the Lord Lyon; and welcomes the news that Dr Joseph J. Morrow, QC, the Right hon. Lord Lyon King of Arms has praised St Kilda's team for pursuing this daunting task which took 12 years to complete and hopes St Kilda has a successful future in publishing.

This motion has been signed by a total of 13 MPs.
