Proper categorization of Macdonald baronets [closed]

A question has arisen as to how best to categorize some of the Baronets of Sleat, etc.  We have a category for Baronet of Sleat here:   http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Category:Baronet_of_Sleat

Eugene Quigley (fellow WikiTreer) contacted me and said, "To my understanding 'Baron of Sleat' is a seperate title than 'Baron of Sleat, County Antrim'".  He referenced the following pages on Wikipedia:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Macdonald_baronets


&
 
In trying to get the categories set up correctly, I'd like to see what others think would be correct.  I propose the following:
  • Macdonald Baronets
    • Macdonald Baronetcy of Sleat
      • Baronets of Sleat
      • Barons Macdonald
    • Macdonald Baronetcy of East Sheen

Please let me know what others think would be the best/proper categorization.  Thanks.

Hi Darlene,

You may find the peerage website helpful for you, the url is http://thepeerage.com/surname_index.htm or DeBrett's Peerage & that url is http://www.debretts.com/people/essential-guide-peerage

All the best

Thanks, Billy.  I see the Peerage has Macdonalds of Slate.  As to breaking them down by Baronetcys, I don't see that.  Hopefully someone with knowledge of the Macdonald Baronets will pipe up here and assist.  If we don't get a consensus by the end of the week, I'll proceed to create the categories as shown above.

Since there have been no additional comments, I have created categories as noted in my original post.
