About The Society

The Forsyth Family Association was founded in 1915, but it languished between the wars, so that the present Society was not formed until 1977. Our aim is to foster a sense of kinship between Forsyths the world over, and to further the reputation, interests, and aspirations of the Clan.

The Clan holds an annual gathering in central Scotland. The venue varies, but it is always chosen to be easily accessible by road or rail. This gathering is an informal family or ‘ceilidh’ style affair, with good food, some dancing and music, and plenty of time to catch up with old friends and to make some new ones. We also try to arrange smaller events in other places.

The Clan circulates an annual newsletter to keep members in touch, wherever they live. This provides an update on Forsyth Family news and forthcoming activities.

If you are trying to trace your Forsyth ancestors, then why not contact us for we have an extensive historical record and can connect branches of the family through the centuries. Of course, the Clan has its own distinctive and attractive tartan, which is worn with pride, and which is registered in the official record of Scottish Tartans.

Lastly, the Society administers a small benevolent fund to help and assist anyone with the name Forsyth, or their dependants, who may be in needy or deprived circumstances. This Trust is a registered charity, and it is maintained by contributions or covenants from members, and anyone else who may wish to promote and support its purpose.

How Do I Join?

It is simple to join the extended Clan Forsyth Family Society. Membership is open to everyone with the name Forsyth, in any of its forms, as well as to those who have a Forsyth somewhere in their ancestry. All it costs is £10 per annum, and this covers the whole family. You can also gift a membership to a relative.

Clan Forsyth Society Certificates are available for a small extra charge to cover postage. In the UK, this is an additional £3, and it is £4 sterling equivalent for all overseas members. These handsome certificates are printed in full colour, and incorporate the Arms of the Chief, by kind permission of Forsyth of that Ilk. They are A4 size, so that they are ideal for framing and display. If you wish to order one of these, please send the name and place of residence which you wish to have inscribed on it, along with your remittance.
