Medium-term goals, with some funding:
- Do further research on the name and heraldry – in Scotland and Ireland, etc., if necessary for access to sources.
- Some libraries to comb through: http://www.bordersfhs.org.uk/BFHSFamilyTreeSearchResults.asp, https://www.electricscotland.com/familytree/about_odom.htm, https://huron.ogs.on.ca/family-histories/, http://www.heraldry-scotland.co.uk/, https://www.gwsfhs.org.uk/surname/mccandlish/, https://www.scotsgenealogy.com/FamilyHistories/FamilyHistoriesAll.aspx – some may require paid memberships).
- Develop a better website, with a professional (albeit occasional) maintainer.
- Provide genealogy resources on the website, starting with a cleaned-up version of Stanton McCandlish’s large GEDCOM file (will need an old OS 9 Apple Macintosh, to process the database into a modern format).
- These days, it might actually be better to ensure that the data is put into https://www.wikitree.com/ which is free; that would not require setting up a database on our end. But it would still be a lot of work.
- Web shop, for fund-raising (McCandlish tartan mugs, etc.); examples: https://www.cafepress.com/+clan-arthur+gifts, https://www.houseofburnett.org/shop, https://clancarrutherssociety.org/merchandise/, https://clanmackenziesociety.co.uk/shop/, https://clanmacleod.org/merchandise/
- Organize full-bolt buys of McCandlish tartan cloth at a discount and provide it to members at or near cost.
