Welcome to Clan MacLennan New Zealand. Our Clan genealogy pages for New Zealand have probably the best coverage of any region in the world – with roots going back to Scotland and elsewhere. The evidence for the work include official record citations, certificates, headstones and much more. We have good coverage of the McLennans who migrated from Cape Breton, Nova Scotia to Waipu (and surrounds). Access to the on-line Clan database is available simply by joining the Clan association – please click on “Membership application” on this page.

We attend Highland Gatherings in different parts of NZ, our Facebook page is a place to connect with other Clan members.

A free Clan travel guide is available as an eBook from the Genealogy section of this website – click on “Scotland Travel Guide” – Genealogy
