The American Clan Gregor Society, Inc is a genealogy-based charitable organization whose members consist primarily of lineal descendants of MacGregors who emigrated from Scotland to America. It was organized in 1909, making it one of the oldest Scottish clan societies in the United States.
The objectives of our Society are:
To gather Gregors, MacGregors, together in clanship.
To promote, foster and collect patriotic, historical and genealogical records for compilation, publication and addition to the History of the American descendants of the Clan Gregor of Scotland.
To aid descendants within the Clan Gregor.
We strive to meet our objectives through a number of methods, the most apparent being annual Gatherings, a newsletter, year book, awarding of multiple educational scholarships annually and recently the addition of a scholarship for piping at Valle Crucis, North Caroloina.
The production of a highly informative newsletter by our newsletter editor has turned this into an easily readable, visually stimulating and highly informative publication. Below, and to whet the appetite, is the first page of our current newsletter. The full 28 pages are available to all members through the Members Only section.Ardchoille Spring 2018 page 1

The 2018 Gathering is over. Despite the small attendance, it was an outstanding success. There will be a picture gallery posted in the Members Only section on-line shortly along with various reports. The highlights were medleys of MacGregor music presented by our piper, Matt Kuldell, and the wonderfully informative and humorous description of MacGregor contributions to the culture of the Highlands by Dr. Michael Newton. A video segment of that presentation will shortly be found on-line also within the Members Only section.
The application deadline for 2018 scholarship applications has passed. The next cycle of scholarships will be 2019 with a deadline for applications being April 1, 2019. Check out the Educational Assistance tab to see what is offered and how to apply. There you will also see details of the piping scholarship at the North American Academy of Piping and Dancing in Valle Crucis, NC.
