Do you want to talk Genealogy, Tartans, Family Crests, or just listen to some “old world” Gaelic? Then plan a visit to the Clans & Societies area at the Capital District Scottish Games.
Athletics, piping, fiddle, and harp contests began in the 11th century when chiefs and kings met to choose the most talented men for their courts, body guards and amusement.
The clan representatives traveled far to see and meet with you, as well as each other. New memberships are welcome, but not required when making rounds of the clan tents to talk, look, and learn. The representatives are eager to answer your questions about families, names, Scotland, and Scottish life and culture. Those with family or society connections are especially welcome.
Search your roots at the Games this year. You may be eligible to become part of the fun, fellowship, and proud heritage that all Scottish clans have to offer.
Clans: Anderson, Armstrong, Arthur, Buchanan, Cambbell, Cameron, Calquhoun, Cranston, Cunningham, Davidson, Donald, Donnachaidh, Durie, Frasier, Gordon, Graham, Grant, Guthrie, Hamilton, Hay, Lindsay, Lockhart, MacAllister, MacCallum-Malcolm, MacDougall, MacDuff, MacDuffee-MacFei, MacFarlane, MacKay, MacKenzie, MacLean, Macleod, MacNeil, MacPherson, MacTavish, Maxwell, Murray, Rose, Ross, Sinclair, and Sutherland
