The Maxwell Clan Society Records consist of photocopies of completed genealogy applications, family lineage charts, birth and death certificates, correspondence, photographs, and published family histories documenting the ancestry of the Maxwell Clan.
The original records were arranged alphabetically into four notebooks: Book I, Maxwell Clan with Maxwell Surname; Book II, Maxwell Clan without Maxwell Surname, A-F; Book III, Maxwell Clan without Maxwell Surname, G-Z; and Book IV, General Genealogical Data. The photocopied records have been placed in acid-free folders and are arranged sequentially according to the original book numbers and then alphabetically by applicant's name.
