No problems, it is all available online.
-- The American Clan System:  Growing And Retaining Membership.  A written report presented by Clan Sinclair PR and Media Director Suzanne Whitmore that summarizes Clan Sinclair's recent survey and research into the threat of declining clan membership and recommendations for help.
--   An introduction to a powerful new online tool that can help clans struggling to communicate with and energize their existing members and to attract (and retain) new members - especially young ones - and a whole lot more.
-- Scottish Heraldry, Clans, Chiefs, The Lord Lyon and You:  Clans don't have coats of arms.  Armigers do.  Join The Rt. Hon. The Viscount Dunrossil, Chairman, The Society of Scottish Armigers for an introduction to the world of clan chiefs, armigerous families and why it is extremely important for you to gain a better understanding of these important traditional 'rules of the road'.

COSCA (Council Of Scottish Clans & Associations) was founded in 1976 by Dr. Herbert MacNeil and others for the purpose of bringing Scottish clan societies together. The initial meeting was held at the Grandfather Mountain Highland Games in Linville, NC and the organization continues to honor this tradition by gathering on the mountain annually. Today COSCA welcomes all kinds of Scottish American organizations as well as interested individuals.

COSCA's primary purpose is to preserve and promote the customs, traditions, and heritage of the Scottish people. We currently serve as a clearing house for Scottish American activities throughout the US. Through our many member clans and organizations, COSCA represents thousands of American Scots across the nation in furtherance of our mission. COSCA is also an active participant in The Scottish Coalition USA, a collective of several organizations united to serve the Scottish-American community through research, long-term planning, and promotion of Scottish heritage.

Making conections

The more information you can give about the people you mention, the more chance there is of someone else connecting with your family.

Dates and places of births, deaths and marriages all help to place families.

Professions also help.

'My great-grandmother mother was a Douglas from Montrose' does not give many clues to follow up! But a bit of flesh on the bones makes further research possible. But if we are told who she married, what his profession was and where the children were baptised, then we can get to work.

Maybe it is time to update the information in your profile?
