The purposes for which the Clan Ferguson Society of North America was formed in 1972 (and its continued purposes) are:
- To collect, preserve and promote interest in and study of literary, historical and genealogical records and documents and relics relating to the history of the Clan Fergusson and/or Scotland.
- To honor our Scottish heritage and to inspire among our members and descendants, the pride and spirit of our Scottish ancestors and to perpetuate and present and disseminate to the public for the present and future, those traditions, values, qualities and attitudes from the past which have proven to be of sound social benefit.
- To come to the relief of the poor and distressed and to provide for the advancement of education and science.
The Clan Fergusson Society of North America also maintains and administers the Clan Fergusson Charitable Trust which exists solely for charitable purposes including, but not limited to, the advancement of education, science and the arts. This is accomplished, for example, through educational grants and scholarships and the dissemination of historical and genealogical information.

Clan MacFarlane Worldwide was incorporated on July 4th, 2010. The idea of our organization was born a year earlier almost 2 thousand miles away surrounded by the deep waters of Loch Lomond and in the shadow of Ben Lomond. It was on the island of Inveruglas, a former MacFarlane stronghold, that the founding members put forth their idea of a Society that would embrace all descendants of the clan no matter their current location. A Society that would work to preserve the physical and cultural aspects of Clan MacFarlane. A Society that would build lasting relations with the inhabitants of Arrochar, Tarbet, Ardlui and other ancestral lands. We have and welcome members from around the world and especially in Canada! Come visit us at the Uxbridge Scottish Festival!

History of Clan MacAulay (MacAuley)
There are three provenances for the surname, one that it comes from Clan Alpen, from which also descends Clan Macgregor; the second is that the MacAuleys originate from a branch of the earldom of Lennox. Duncan filius Auleth witnessed a Charter by Malcolm, Earl of Lennox in c.1285, and for the following three centuries the family are on record as being principal vassals of the Lennox earldom.
