McColl Society Journal - Cuairtear Chloinn Cholla

I have converted my set of photocopied Journals into PDFs, but I am missing no 25 = Vol 9ís only issue from about 1941. If anyone were willing to lend me an original or set of photocopies (including outside and inside covers) I would repay them with a CD of the complete set. I have not done anything marvellous, just made a series of 10-12MB files. They are not yet saleable and although I still wish to OCR and index them, I realise that something now is better than everything never. The magazines may be found in several librariesóI found them originally in the Cambridge University library and Iím sure the Mitchell has them too. Probably most of the copyright libraries have them. I am happy to converse about these, but as I donít know them off by heart or have the index, such conversations may be long drawn out!

My thoughts in earlier postings of what the tree coding meant (eg C29, my grandfather) were naÔve at best. Perhaps SC did stand for South Carolina, but C and D certainly did not mean Canada and Somewhere Else! I have not studied the journals deeply but I cannot find any description of the tree coding except this sentence at the head of every listing of members: ďThe letters and numbers shown against membersí names refer to the file and page of the memberís genealogy in our records.Ē

Here is the list of journals, the gap being the only one missing from my set. The original volume numbering on the cover with an issue number within each volume changed at Volume 7 when it became whole numbers, and when production became disrupted by the War the numbers within each volume became very irregular. I do not believe that any issue after no 34 was published but I would be pleased to be proved wrong. Iíve also made a consolidated Table of Contents (but still missing no 25 of course) and will post it in GenForum if such a long list would be acceptable.

No 9 includes an enrolment form, so does no 29. No 20 includes a 1935 news clipping that was tucked in the magazine that I copied. No 14 includes the tartan sample in colour, and also in colour is the bookplate in No 20 and the Hydroís arms in No 34.
