Jardine Clan Society
The Jardine Clan Society was started in Scotland on March 22, 1977 by Sir William Jardine of Applegirth, the 22nd hereditary Clan Chief of Clan Jardine (with over 200 members) as a focal point for people with Jardine, or a variation thereof, in their surname or in their ancestry. Branches in Canada, USA, New Zealand and Australia have gatherings and there is an international gathering, usually in Dumfries, Scotland every second year–that is in 2013, 2015, 2017 and so on. Each year members receive a newsletter reporting the activities of Jardines past and present.
It is rated as one of the best newsletters produced by any clan society.
