MESSAGE FROM SYD FINLAY, ASSOCIATION PRESIDENT AND COMMISSIONER FOR NSW AND ACT
Clan Farquharson Association Australia is a not-for-profit organization established to provide a point of reference for Australians having a common interest in their Scottish heritage and its celebration here in
Australia; and in exploring their family history and links to Clan, and a common ancestral background.
To serve these ends we seek to help our fellow Clansmen by:
- publicising events such as Gatherings, etc run by the Scottish community, which our members can attend;
- organizing our own events where we can meet and exchange ideas and information;
- and pointing the way for our fellow Clansmen in historical and family research.
I invite you to join our Association and enjoy the benefits and camaraderie of Membership. In doing so I also invite you to respond in spirit to the ancient Clan Farquharson rallying cry “Càrn-na-Cuimhne!”, meaning “Remember the Cairn!”.
“Càrn-na-Cuimhne!” refers to the ancient secret rallying point for our Clansmen in Scotland, which is now a memorial cairn honouring those fallen in battle.
