The "CLAN"

ALL Campbells by birth or marriage and bona fide members of the recognized Septs of the Clan are members of the CLAN CAMPBELL. It is one of the largest and most influential Scottish clans under its Chief, the Duke of Argyll. The Campbells have a long and glorious history and Campbells enjoy a long and illustrious heritage of which they can be proud.


Some members of the various Scottish Clans have organized "Clan Societies" which usually have the objectives of bringing like-minded people together to mutually assist each other in researching their family roots, in gaining knowledge of the history and heritage of their Clan and of their own forebears. The Societies also provide an organizational structure through which members can get together for social purposes, to celebrate Scottish Feast Days and have their Clan represented at Scottish Gatherings and Festivals. Most Societies also provide their members with a periodic "Newsletter: which is the core of communication between members.

THE CLAN CAMPBELL SOCIETY - NOVA SCOTIA was incorporated on April 10, 1980. It is a volunteer organization. Those who serve as officers and directors are those who are willing to devote their time and energies to making the Society as beneficial as posible for the members.
