    Please could someone show me a circuit diagram of a simple clock generator circuit that incorporates a crystal oscillator in the resonant circuit, does not rely on any capacitors to control the frequency and has an output frequency of around 1 Mhz. The specific frequency does not matter.

    Look here.
    You may need additional capacitors (see here) to get the oscillator running stable. These capacitors will influence the frequency by a small amount. The fundamental frequency, however, is defined by the quartz.

    Thankyou Harald Kapp and KrisBlueNZ. I will have to read the full document you have provided only when I am sure my circuit, in which I will be using the clock generator, will function.

    You can get a 1MHz oscillator in a single package as well.
