The library is maintained by the Clan Society Genealogist who also provides answers to members' individual inquiries. The Society is represented at almost every Scottish Game and Gathering in North America. Tents at these events provide our members with the camaraderie of kindred souls as well as a refuge where rest may be found and coolers and chairs may be stored while enjoying the festivities.

    Campbell Facts
    This page has answers to those most basic and important facts that should be known by every Campbell, Society member or not.

    • The Clan and the Clan Society are not one and the same; the Society is part of the Clan and cannot presume to be the Clan itself.

    • While the Chief is not involved with the day-to-day running of the Society, he is both the Patron of the Clan Campbell Society (North America) and its effective head since the whole essence of the Clan system lies in the loyalty to the Chief.
