    My mother was an Anderson. Just curious if I would be eligible to join this group even though my last name isn’t Anderson.

      Hi Marsha,
      We don’t currently have an active genealogy committee but may in the future. You can join our Facebook group and connect with other Andersons throughout the world, who may be able to help.

    It is my understanding that Anderson Clan Members can submit Genealogy information to share with other members.

    How can I do this and how can I see other Anderson pedigree charts?

    When I go to the Genealogy tab on this website it says “Under Construction”
    I would like to see if I have ancestor connections with others in the Society.
    Thank you,
    Jan Dean Sislo

    Is Clan Anderson 501(c)3?

      Yes. The society was incorporated in the state of Georgia and received its nonprofit status in 1993.

    Currently doing my genealogy through and have done the DNA testing. Traced my Anderson ancestors only as far back as John Anderson born 1697 in Kilsyth Stirlingshire, Scotland. One mystery I need solved is that there are apparently two branches. Clan Anderson and Anderson family each having a different tartan. Is this true and any idea how i would find out which one I belong too? I am attending a scottish Wedding at the end of the year and was planning on getting a kilt made, but now I am unsure which tartan to use. Any help would be fantastic

      Hi Simon,
      I am just the webmaster, and the Clan Anderson Society doesn’t currently have a volunteer who manages genealogy inquiries. But my husband and I host a Clan Anderson Colorado tent at many Scottish/Celtic festivals in Colorado. What we’ve learned is that there are multiple branches of the Anderson family in Scotland going back to the 16th and 17th century (and likely before). The Andersons don’t have historic lands in Scotland though there are certain geographical areas where you will find large concentrations. For example Candacraig is a estate (not a castle) that was built by Andersons in the 17th century. It is located in Strathdon in the Cairngorms NP. Andersons are a sept of Ross which has historic lands just northwest of the Firth of Moray. The current chief of Clan Anderson Society lives in Dumfrees area and we’ve met a number of Andersons who have ancestors from that area of Scotland. And there are only a few Andersons tartans: modern, ancient and weathered. They are not related to specific families.
