Our Clan Forrester family had a very exciting 2018 year.  We exceeded our goal of 240 members.  Please contact members of your family and friends that you may know that would be interested in becoming a member of our Clan Forrester family.  There are many Forresters (all spellings) that may not be aware of our fantastic family history.  We need your help to reach our 2019 goal.

The Highland games were very successful and enjoyable for the 2018 season.  We have representation/tents at many of the games over the USA.  Our council attends five of the games (Central Florida, Loch Norman, Blairsville, Grandfather Mountain and Stone Mountain) each year with tent representation.  Our game event for the first 6 months is:

Central Florida  Highland Games,
Winter Springs, FL – January 19-20, 2019

Loch Norman Highland Games,
Huntersville, NC – April 12-14, 2019

Smoky Mountain Scottish Festival,
Maryville, TN – May 17-19, 2019

Greenville Scottish Games,
Greenville, SC – May 24-25, 2019

Glasgow Highland Games,
Glasgow, KY – May 31-June 2, 2019

Blairsville Highland Games,
Blairsville, GA- June 8-9, 2019

Please plan to join us at one of the games this year.

The DNA project for our Forrester (all spellings) family is getting to be very exciting.  Many new “doors” are being opened to our ancestry lines.  Please consider participating with this project.  All male descendants are needed to help in this area.  Contact our DNA consultant, Nathan Forrister, for more information at

Many of you have expressed a desire to be more involved with our Clan Family!  Wow! This would be wonderful. Please contact me at  to let me know how you would like to serve.  We are open to any new ideas that you might have.

Thank you so much for your support to our Clan Forrester family.

With regards,

Ben Forrester, Membership Director
