How to Join Us
How do members benefit?
Sans Peur Times. Regular Newsletters are issued free to members several times a year by email. The Sans Peur Times gives topical news from Scotland as well as news of what Sutherlands throughout the world are doing. There are articles on clan history and family history as well as an opportunity to exchange family history information. Members are encouraged to contribute information for the Newsletter. In addition, some of the editions are dedicated to Genealogy. Members also have free access to an archive of past editions of the Sans Peur Times located in a password-protected section of this website. Members can obtain the password via the contact us page, by providing their membership number.
The Society holds an Annual General Meeting each year. Please check the Events and the News pages of the website for details. The agendas will be sent out to members via the Sans Peur Times, and the minutes will be issued when completed. In addition the Clan Sutherland Society in Scotland regularly organises International Gatherings. Details of these Gatherings are given on the website or in the Sans Peur Times. It is anticipated that the next International Gathering will be in 2018, and more details will follow!
The Clan Sutherland Society in Scotland has its base at Dunrobin Castle, near Golspie, which is open to the public from Easter to October. Society members enjoy free entry to the Castle on production of a current membership card. The Clan Room displays articles and information relating to the Clan.
Who can join?
The Society is open to anyone bearing the name Sutherland. Some authorities regard the families of Cheyne, Federith, Gray, Oliphant, Mowat and a branch of the Keiths as historically associated with the Clan. Anyone else interested in joining may apply for membership.
