Society’s purpose is to reunite all those with the name Duncan and its
variant spellings and promote continuance of the Clan as an effective body.
Society will provide opportunities for all members’ to develop kinship
amongst one another through various publications, meetings and electronic
media such as an online forum and variety of discussion groups. The
individual genealogical histories of individual Society members’ can be
published on the Clan Society website to aid, preserve and advance research
and can be openly discussed on the Society’s forum.
Society serves to promote recognition and a general awareness of the Clan
and its history to its members, outside bodies, the public here in Scotland
and overseas through its presence at Highland Games, various advertisements
and the worldwide web. In providing education about the Clan and Scotland,
its history, and its culture, the Society promotes and protects the
interests of the Clan and its origins.
Society encourages members’ to become armigerous in their own right and bear
‘Scottish Arms’ which, will further strengthen our case to the Court of the
Lord Lyon in Edinburgh when petitioning for an officially recognised Leader
of Clan Duncan. Help will be given by the Society to those members’ at home
here in Scotland, the UK, and overseas with full membership and a proven
genealogical paper chase to their Scottish Origins in the process and
procurement of Scottish Armorial Bearings.
The Society will maintain a ‘Clan Roll Call’, which represents a listing of
persons declaring themselves to be members of the Clan. This is of
particular importance because we need to gather together as a Clan in order
to successfully petition the Court of the Lord Lyon in Scotland to recognise
a Clan Duncan Leader. The names of all qualifying Society members are
automatically added to The Clan Roll Call upon submission of their
Membership Application. ‘Click here’ to learn
more about membership in the Society.
Clan members who have not yet joined the Society but who wish to add their
name to the ‘Clan Roll Call’ to support our Clan revival efforts and be on
our mailing list can do so immediately; ‘click here’
for more Clan Roll Call information. It’s not too late for you to help
your Clan! The Society provides Clan Roll Call registration as a FREE
service to all Clan members.
The Society’s 'Clan Historical and Genealogical Archive' (a future project)
will collect, preserve, and disseminate literary, historical, and
educational materials pertaining to Clan Duncan, its members, and Scotland.
The Clan and the Society are not one and the same; the Society is a group of
the Clan’s members and friends and it does not purport to be the Clan
itself. We encourage all members of the Clan to join the Society as a way to
help support, financially and otherwise, the Clan’s interests and to
participate in the heritage of the Clan.
