The Clan Mackintosh Society of Victoria Inc was formed in 1992 and became the Clan Mackintosh Society of Australia Inc a few years later, but closed its doors in October 2004. During the time the Clan was active, it collected information about Mackintoshes in Australia from contemporary souces as well as from its members. Till now this information has been held in the Clan Archives (folders), but before its demise, the Society Executive agreed that the website domain name would be kept, provided that it was used to facilitate research and assistance to Mackintosh researchers. We now make the archives available to all Mackintoshes (whatever spelling) on a family by family basis via the software running this web site.
To start the archives, the entries in the Birth, Death and Marriage Indexes (for each state) were compiled into families. These were expanded with the addition of:
- Birth Notices and Certificates
- Death Notices and Memorials, and Certificates
- Marriage and Engagement announcements and Certificates
- Obituaries and Biographies
- Directories, Gazettes and Lists
- Will and Probate records
- Inquest indexes and records
- Military Service records
- Ship Passenger records
- Court sessions records
- Books and Magazine articles
- Cemetery Registers and Headstone transcriptions
- Census records
- Electoral Rolls
- Correspondence from family members
- IGI and OPR indexes and records
- as well as many other sources particular to individuals.
Note: If you have extractions of MacIntosh/Mackintosh/McIntosh/etc entries from a source, and/or family documents and would like to donate a copy to our archives, please contact us. If you would like to add your family to our database or expand your family entries, please see our instructions.
Family groups are indicated by a code eg Melbourne12. This is purely to tie the data back to our records in the Archives and an easy code to identify the family concerned. The codes were assigned using the earliest place of residence in Australia where we initially found the family. They do not indicate the primary or final settlement place.
There may be instances when we suspect that families are related, but cannot tie them to together with any certaincy. If you can help in this regard, we would be very grateful for the information.
When contacting us, we will be able to quickly identify your family if you cite the given code (or codes).
We do not show living people in our database unless the user is logged in and a member of your family: Each family in the database is defined as a separate tree and users are assigned to a tree.
