The cynicism of myself and others in regards to the modern-day perception of clans shouldn't alter your pride in your family heritage or your interest in your family history.
It's just that we prefer to take pride in our own direct ancestors, who we can identify through the vast range of resources available here in Scotland, rather than claiming relationship with anyone who just happens to share the same surname as you.
It's only my personal opinion though, and I fully respect others who have different views to my own. Please feel free to contact me on email@example.com
if you would like to continue the discussion.
