Scholarship Awards Committee
The Society is looking for a few members to serve on the Scholarship Awards Committee. Experience in the Scottish Arts (piping, drumming, fiddle, harp, highland & country dancing, athletics, voice, etc) or experience in scholarship selection is desired. Interested parties should contact either Evelyn M.E. Murray, President, or Peg Murray for details.


Genealogist USA
The Society has need of a Genealogist to support members living in the USA. Prior experience with family history research is helpful, but not essential. Interested parties should contact either Evelyn ME Murray, President, or Steve Murray-Wolf, Vice President, for details.

Several needed to set up and man tents at games and festivals and to recruit new members in their states.

We need all we can get to celebrate the Murray heritage by helping man clan tents, marching in parades, attending Scottish events. Dressing Scottish is optional but fun!

Welcome to the official Murray Clan Society of North America website. We sincerely hope you find your visit with us informative and enjoyable. Our community exists to draw together those who bear the name Murray, allied families (septs) or their descendants.  We hope to cultivate a spirit of kinship and pride, to collect historical and genealogical records, and to provide a gathering place at the various Highland Gatherings throughout North America. We'd like to extend an invitation to join us and share in our friendship and fellowship.

His Grace,The 12th Duke of Atholl, Bruce Murray became Chief of Clan Murray in 2012. Not only is he the clan's Chief, but he commands Europe's only private army, the Atholl Highlanders.

When not taking part in his ceremonial duties he is a businessman in South Africa like his late father, John Murray, the 11th Duke of Atholl. The Chief's wife, Charmaine, is Duchess of Atholl and his oldest son, Michael, is the Marquess of Tullibardine. The Chief's other children are Lord David and Lady Nicole.

In 2012, he and the Atholl Highlanders visited the Massachusets town of Athol to help celebrate the 250th anniversary of its incorporation. One of its founders was the Second Duke of Atholl, who gave it its present name.
