The Associated Clan MacLeod Societies has undertaken the publication of a series of books documenting the genealogy of the Clan. Other genealogy and research projects have also been initiated with complement this work.
At its meeting in February 2010, the ACMS Managemnt Council MC agreed by consensus that the project should go ahead - subject to funding approval - and also agreed to actively collaborate and cooperate under the auspices of ACC.
A specification was produced in 2004 to guide the production of the sixth volume. This is a project to revise and update the previous five volumes. This will require the addition of a minimum of three new generations. The logistics of producing such a huge revision would require the active participation of individual MacLeod families, each taking responsibility for updating their sections.
