Clan MacRae Society of Canada
Clan MacRae Society of Canada was formed while on a trip to Scotland in 2000. The society started with 6 people and who organized the Board and it has been active in Scottish activities since. We are an armigerous clan and have been active socially holding an AGM every year somewhere in Canada.
This year the Clan MacRae is starting on Aug. 7th – 8th in Niagara Falls and Niagara-on-the-Lake. Then we will take our Gathering/Social to Guelph & Fergus on Aug.8th – 12th . Our itinerary is full and concentrates on Lt. Col. John McCrea (100 yrs. after his death) whom wrote “In Flanders Fields”. We are also visiting the Guelph University for a several short lectures. A Banquet and Ceilidh are planned for the Saturday evening. The Special guest at our AGM in Guelph/Fergus will be the Constable of Eilean Donan Castle in Scotland - Miranda Van Lynden.
We invite any of our MacRae family (by whatever spelling) and Septs of the Clan to join us during our 6 day event. You may choose all of the events or some of them, whatever you wish. If you are interested or just curious and would like information on the events planned, please contact Barb or John Duff at email@example.com or phone 905-387-5541. We will email the information to you with dates, costs, etc.
The MacRae Clan of Canada just started to work on Genealogy in Canada a few years ago, therefore we are not as far advanced as many Clans. The Clan DNA project is growing and our members have made many connections along the way. I urge those trying to find family to submit your DNA to Family Tree DNA and the Clan Macrae project.
We are now busy planning for our 2018 Festivals and Highland Games. We are hosting a tent at Georgetown, Cobourg, Cambridge, Kinmount, Maxville/Glengarry, Glengarry/Maxville, Fergus, and possibly a several more. Stop by for a chat or just to say “Hi”
