The Aims & Purpose.
The purpose of The Donachie Society is to promote a deeper understanding of the individual family histories of those that carry or have carried the name of Donachie, and or any of its many variants. We hope to extend our knowledge of the origins and history of the name itself, through specific and general communication, voluntary assistance and mutual effort from its members and by research.
To form deeper contact with our parent clan, Clan Donnachaidh and to assist future research by our parent clan into the Sept/branch of the Donachie name.
The site is here to help members of the name and to celebrate our Scottish ancestry and mutual kinship there will be no fees. At this stage it is purely a group of like-minded individuals who wish to assist others in family research and Scottish culture, kinship and traditions.
The Society 's purpose is to promote continuance of the Clan spirit and the Future of our Clan as an effective body by providing opportunities to develop kinship among members of the Clan, by developing preserving our Clan history and our members ' individual genealogical histories, and by encouraging the recognition of our Clan by outside bodies.
The Society serves to promote a general awareness of the Clan and its history to its members and to the public at-large through its presence and at future Clan gatherings and Highland Games and through various advertisements, and through its worldwide web site. In providing education about the various Clans and Scotland, its history, and its culture, the Society promotes and protects the interests of the Clan and its origins and our parent clan Clan Donnachaidh or Clan Robertson.
The Society maintains The Clan Roll Call - join up members page, which represents a listing of persons declaring themselves to be members of the Society. This is of particular importance because we need to gather together as a Clan in order to successfully petition the Court of the Lord Lyon to recognize eventually a Clan Donnachie Leader and in turn the recognition our clan deserves. The Society 's Historical and Genealogical Repository (which will be a future project) will collect, collate and preserve, and disseminate literary, historical, and educational materials pertaining to Donachie 's, its members, and Scotland.
We hope in the future to be able to be in a position to encourage kinship in a number of awards for clan and society members who have been excelled or been instrumental in developing our clan, the culture, heritage of Scotland and by strengthening our kinship and fostering the mutual friendship of the clans and the clan spirit.
