A day at the Society of Genealogists – researching the history of the Clan

A group of the Association’s members visited the Society of Genealogists on May 17. We saw a number of interesting documents relating to Clan members. It is definitely worth a visit. Among other points of interest, we established that Oliver Wendell Holmes (father and son of course) were reportedly descended from Homes/Humes. So, as well as these distinguished American connections, we can claim Sherlock as a (fictional) member of the Clan!
