In an earlier post, Natasha, you say it gives you "joy to think that people of the same name are getting together and keeping Scottish culture popular and enjoying themselves in the process." I'm confused then by the attack on The Clan Akin who is providing just that and with volunteer labor. I know what the dues are and I can't believe they cover all that is sent to me. I can guarantee that no one is making money off the members of this organization.
If there is someone in Scotland that determines who is an official Scottish Clan and who isn't, who gave them this kind of authority over something that is historical and from the people? Let's let it rest and get back to finding our roots.
