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 prior to 1870. 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 Society collects and stores genealogical information on members for purposes of genealogical research by members and scholars at the Langsdale Library at the University of Baltimore. Other methods are the 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 Carolina.
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 Member Portal section.Ardchoille Spring 2018 page 1

ANNUAL GATHERING 2018
The 2018 Gathering is over. Despite the small attendance, it was an outstanding success. Check out the picture gallery. 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 some of that presentation will shortly be found on-line and also within the Member Portal section.
