McLeod encompasses the body of work researched by several people involved with the genealogical branch descended from Malcolm McLeod (c1786-?), born while crossing the Atlantic. What you will find here is the spine of the American family branch pertaining to relatives and descendants of the family, which spawns over two hundred years of Clan McLeod from the Isle of Skye through this individual. The information compiled here is from a multitude of sources, from descendants' own personal notes, to GENforms, US Censuses, both as well as, the LDS among other sources. Remember when updating pages to list sources and keep it as accurate as possible to preserve the GED file format. But unlike the GED, these pages allow for media articles pertaining to the individuals as well as biographies, ancedotes as well as other sources (including, but not limited to, images, news stories, books, coat-of-arms, links to relevant sources that help both family members and other genealogists as an aide. Welcome to the McLeod Wiki. ;)
