JOIN US – You can be part of our Worldwide Family!
Are you yearning to learn more about your MacAulay ancestry and to connect with MacAulay kin worldwide? We welcome MacAulays of all spellings (such as Aulay, MacAlley, MacAulay, MacAuley, MacAully. MacPhedran, MacPhedron, McAuley, McCallie, McCauley, McCawley, etc.) to be members of the Clan. Clan MacAulay, one of the most active and democratic Scottish Clan Societies in the world today, wants to welcome you to the Clan. As a member, you will benefit from the rights and privileges due to all loyal Clan Members. We have a whole list of them below! Best of all, you will have fun while connecting with MacAulays around the world!
Membership is also open to all who are married to a MacAulay or part of a MacAulay Sept, and, in keeping with Scottish traditions, those who want to be associated with the Clan MacAulay, the greatest family in all of Scotland. (Understandably, we are a wee bit prejudiced.)
Clan members from around the globe come together biennially in Scotland for a traditional Gathering. (From the side bar, select “Clan Gatherings” to see information about past events). The Clan is represented at many of the Scottish Games and Gatherings in North America. Members set up hospitality tents at these events and offer all MacAulay attendees the camaraderie of kindred souls as well as information on Clan history and news.
Get started by downloading and completing the Clan MacAulay Membership Application (click to download) and sending it to our Membership Secretary either by eMail or postal mail. Full directions are found on the form. You will be invoiced and payment can be made via PayPal, bank transfer, or cheque (from the UK only). If you prefer a printed application that can be completed manually and mailed, download HERE.
