CELTIC - These sites focus on Celtic genealogy and culture... For many people, the term Celtic  is a homogenized one, popularly used to apply to cultural groups located in the British Isles and Ireland. However, from an anthropological standpoint, the term Celtic  is actually fairly complex. Rather than meaning just people of Irish or English background, Celtic is used by scholars to define a specific set of language groups, originating both in the British Isles and in the mainland of Europe.

  • Celtic Guide - Welcome to one valuable set of lessons in Celtic discovery, brought to you by a growing number of authors who care enough to spend their time writing articles for the Celtic Guide. There are many magazines with multi-person staffs that have as many pages or less and yet we do this with our one-man layout artist (me), backed by so many great writers... and, it s all FREE to the readers!

  • Irish Clans - An Irish Clan is a family association made up of people with a common surname and ancestry, and should not be confused with Scottish Clans. Most are members of Clans of Ireland, which was chartered by Irish Tourist Board (Bord F !ilte) and the Department of the Taoiseach to promote and assist Irish Clans worldwide.

  • Scottish Clan and Society Listings - A group of people related by blood or marriage, also a Gaelic wording meaning family. A Clan is very different from a Clan Society. A Society is organized independently of the Clan. The Society functions as a cooperating branch of the Clan, working closely with the Clan leaders to ensure accuracy in matters of research, protocol, and all things Scottish. Therefore, there can be great differences between Clans (those who attended the Battle of Cullodean), and the Societies, Associations, etc.. which may have formed as an adjunct to the Clan.
