There are also many spelling variants of Buchanan not on this list that are welcome. Some of the septs are Buchanan by blood descent, and others by their allegiance and affiliation historically with the clan. Clans are not always blood families. Clans were often more like war-bands who held a particular territory in the days before surnames were fixed. Clan Buchanan Society International welcomes any who descend from the septs above: https://www.memberplanet.com/clanbuchanansocietyinternational This list welcomes posts on Buchanan (and all variant spellings of the surname), and all recognized septs of Clan Buchanan. The posts should be restricted to Clan Buchanan, its septs, its history, and genealogy. Please put the surname that you are posting about in the subject tag of an initial chain. Any off topic postings may be deleted.

  • Clan Chattan Genealogy and Family History
    Some Clan organizations have Clan Genealogists who will assist you in your genealogical research on request. Here we help one another with our genealogy and family history research also. Clans are not families, and are not the same as surnames, either. They were more like war-bands who held a particular territory, in the days before surnames were fixed. Most Clans now do not demand that you to prove your right to belong by descent. Once you have done the research, and are satisfied that you want to align yourself with a group, they will be glad to welcome you to their ranks.
