Welcome to the official Murray Clan Society of North America website. We sincerely hope you find your visit with us informative and enjoyable. Our community exists to draw together those who bear the name Murray, allied families (septs) or their descendants. We hope to cultivate a spirit of kinship and pride, to collect historical and genealogical records, and to provide a gathering place at the various Highland Gatherings throughout North America. We'd like to extend an invitation to join us and share in our friendship and fellowship.
