We will list all Family Groups, by their Earliest Known Ancestor and also Line Leaders (Researchers) who wish to be listed.   We hope that, eventually,  'all'  McDiarmid / MacDiarmid / McDermid Family Groups will be listed on this page.  

We also hope to eventually locate descendants of each family group and to arrange their participation in the DNA project.    (Participation in the DNA Project is not a requirement for listing on this page, but we will indicate families who have a male representing them in the DNA Project !)

                                                    McDiarmid / McDermid  and variants

Each Family Group posted here, is listed by earliest known ancestor.  We hope eventually that each Family Group listing will include a Line Leader (Researcher) to expand their family line. 

Kindly assist us in this Project by posting your Family Group's Pedigree. 

This page lists over 500 McDiarmid / McDermid surnames and  variant spellings  representing  over 100 McDiarmid / McDermid Family Groups World-wide. The pages are being continuously updated.

Have you found a Link or an error? – Would you kindly let the Project Administrator Bruce Edmonds know?..... More McDiarmid / McDermid  and variant name postings are required! Please Email us, or post your information on the McDiarmid Pedigree Forum.  Thankyou for supporting this project.

 Please note that  Pedigree listings do not include any marriage information, any death information, or any details on the wife - other than name.  It is intended to allow a researcher to identify a family of interest.  It is NOT intended to provide all of the information that is known on this family.  Often, something special is listed on the first generation, as usually little is known about the early family members.
