25 April 2021: New thoughts about the Origins of Clan MacKenzie
Graeme Mackenzie's researches into the history of the MacKenzies of Dalmore - see above - and his discovery of early MacKenzies in Aberdeenshire, may connect with suggestions about a possible origin for the clan in Buchan made some years ago in his doctoral thesis by Aonghus MacCoinnich of Glasgow University. Graeme will be developing this line of enquiry in a paper to be included in the second volume of his historical and genealogical essays, "Cabarfeidh's Cousins" - the publication date of which will be announced on this page later this year.
