I am not a crawford by name, but by blood on my Grandma's side. Can I join the clan crawford?

From reading I understand that the answer is no, lineage passes thru the name, not thru those of us from a married female who took a different family name.

Of course you are welcome to join and participate in the Crawford Clan Association. All Crawford descendants are welcome. You just can't donate your y-DNA. It is only passed on through the male line. We'd love to have your participation in the association, though, and if you'd like to volunteer for something, that would be appreciated. If you have any Crawford surname relatives, we would be delighted if they would participate in the DNA Project.

Thanks for the okay. I have found out that Grandma Alma's father was William Gerhart Crawford (scotch?) and mother was Emma Louisa Stroup Crawford (irish?) from Butler County Pennsylvania. How would I chase that further?

Oh well, gotta find a kilt now. :)

Initially, I'd try your luck on-line. Ancestry.com has a lot of public records available on line through their subscriptions. I actually found many for both a William G. Crawford and an Emma L. Stroup in Pennsylvania, as well as for Alma Crawfords. Some may refer to your ancestors. If you had given me dates of birth and death (at least approximately), I could have done a more accurate check. Ancestry offers a two week free trial subscription. You might try that. After that you would have to actually chase down actual records probably in the Butler County records and in other archives. Good luck. I continue to be happy to help in any way I can. Regards. And best of luck in your researching.

Mike,As long as you can prove you are blood related you can.All you have to submit is your family lineage,the clan I have belonged to in the past sent you an application,you will have to go to the clan crawford site and request a form and they will either email one or snail mail it.My last name is not crawford either.I can belong to either or both Crawford or Munro clans as I have both in my lineage.Hope this helps.Janet
