CCS(NA) Region 1
Welcome to the website of Region 1 (New England) of the Clan Campbell Society, North America. The society is not the clan; one is born into or descended from the clan. The Clan Campbell Society, North America (CCS,NA) is an association of clan members and friends of the clan who represent Clan Campbell and celebrate our mutual heritage. The CCS, NA works to maintain and rediscover old traditions, whether it is donning the kilt, promoting the music, sharing the history or learning the language of our ancestors.
Come join us on the journey of rediscovery in the coming year.
Welcome to the official website of Region 1 of the Clan Campbell Society (North America). We are proud to act as the representatives of the Clan in New England and hope that we have the opportunity to meet you at one of the many Scottish gatherings in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, or Vermont. Join us as we celebrate the proud heritage of our ancestors, and our common bond of kinship.
As a member of Clan Campbell, whether you have the surname Campbell, or any of the sept names, you are blessed with a proud heritage that can be traced back many generations. It is a goal of the Clan Campbell Society (North America) to help you and others learn more about that heritage, to rediscover the old traditions, and keep them alive for following generations.
The CCS (NA) is a society for Campbells, those with Campbell family or sept names, and friends of the Clan. It is a part of the International Federation of Clan Campbell Societies.
The Society is an all-volunteer organization, with the membership electing officers and trustees. The Society maintains a library that includes historical, literary, and genealogical materials of Campbells or pertaining to Clan Campbell. A genealogy program is an integral part of the Society. Members share whatever genealogical information they have about their family history and its maintained by the Society. The most tangible asset of membership is the quarterly publication, the Journal of the Clan Campbell Society (North America).
One is born into the clan. One becomes a member of the Society by registering and paying dues. This is an important distinction. The Society is a family association that represents the Clan at the request of and with the blessing of our Clan Chief.
The Clan Campbell Society (North America) divides North America into 14 regions. There are 11 regions in the United States and three regions in Canada. Region 1 consists of the six New England states; Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont. The CCS (NA), represented by Region 1, can be found at Scottish festivals, games, and gatherings throughout New England. Society representatives hold the title of Commissioner. This is because they have been commissioned by our Clan Chief to represent the clan.
After reading through these pages, we hope you leave having learned a little something about your Highland heritage. For we take to heart the motto of our Clan Chief:
Ne Obliviscaris - Forget Not
