my father and i have started to look into our family history (at least on his side of the family) and combined with my mothers i am 25%irish 25%dutch and 50%german. all i know for certine is my grandmothers relitives were O'Cunnerns from ireland but i don't know for sure if there was really a clan or not. does anyone have any idea??? if not as a side note can you be taken in and prehapes join a clan? i know it wouldn't be by blood but sometimes faith and love is thicker then blood. just a question.
May all your hardships fade away till night becomes morn, may love remain to guide your way... till the day we are reborn.
hey i'll take a look at any list you have to offer. as far as the O'Connor thing i'm not sure. connor isn't my name i just used it becuase i liked it. you know from highlander the movie. anyway i'm just wondering about all this but having a bigger family (even if i never see them) would be kinda cool. thanks for the info if you have any more please tell me

thats a list of all the clans? i thought there were more but i wasn't sure. thanks for the list hopefully i'll get some time to look some of them up and get information on them. i love history in case you were wondering. thanks again.
oh... good god i guess the scots loved to have their own little clans to do with as they saw fit. of course thats not really any different then what we do today putting different lables on different people. oh well by the time i find them all i'll be drunk in my grave.
well i don't know about dead...but definately feeling no pain!!!
clans were never little but smaller families(septs) did swear to abide by the laws of the stronger and larger and the larger ones in turn swore to protect them...that was not too bad, but alliances could change alot and so could having lots of daughters to marry into better situations for the septs.
if you really want to go nuts there is also cadet lines coming from both clans and septs!!!!now you figure them out and you will be dead
I think you should look in your family history a little bit more and be carefull.What exactly do you want ?Have you try to see if you can get help from an aunt or a cousin.Sometimes they can tell a lot about family.You can try to search your roots ,a lot a web site about genealogy and many forum where you can ask questions.But the real question is what is your goal , joining a clan???
I do hope you have not given up on finding your roots. You ask about being taken into a clan. Yes, most clans are happy you wish to display their tartan. Diana Gabaldon was taken into Clan Henderson and wears our tartan proudly. As an elder I would welcome you and your family if you wish.
