Clan Carmichael Genealogy 

Connect with Carmichaels the world over to share and discover the stories of your ancestry. 


Many Carmichaels and Carmichael-descendants enjoy the investigative puzzles of genealogy work. Whether you can trace back only a few generations, or all the way to the sordid love affair of King James V and his mistress Catherine (Elizabeth) Carmichael, genealogy turns over some surprising stones.

Thankfully, few of us have to start from scratch anymore, as the internet provides treasure troves of hard-won research from kith and kin all over. This page allows CCUSA members a place to share helpful links, books, resources, and more to aid in our mutual look into the past. If you have anything you'd like to see shared below, please email the webmaster here
