    1. Scottish Information Society request and information
    2. Dear Clan Representatives: The Scottish Information Society (SIS), formed 1987, is comprised of and exists in support of those who volunteer their time at the clan tents, working events at various venues. One member delegate from each Clan, House or Scottish Society is invited to join to represent their officially recognized clan/society organization. We are in the process of revamping our web site http://www.scottishinfo.org It is currently off line, however, it is our hope to have it back up and functional before the end of April. We hope to include many helpful elements for the public to view. Currently one of the major projects in process is a comprehensive games listing for all 50 US states. In future, we hope to be able to add an International games listing. I would appreciate it if you would email me directly at confido@ix.netcom.com with: the most current contact information for your Clan, especially: the name of your Chief the names and contact information for those that convene your tents or are area commissioners the name and contact information for your genealogist(s) the name and contact information for your clan historian(s) the name and contact information for your editor(s) the name of your clan newsletter and frequency of publication the URL/information re your clan's official discussion group... is it this list at Rootsweb? or is it different? the name and contact information for whoever may be in charge of your DNA project the URL for your clan's OFFICIALLY sanctioned website -- sorry no personal or non-sanctioned sites can be linked Additonally, SIS, will have a tent at the upcoming Sacramento Valley (California) Caledonia Club Games, in Woodland, California, at the end of April. If you will send some information regarding your clan, we will be pleased to have it on hand, whether or not your representative is able to attend and host a tent at the event. We would also appreciate your mailing a copy or copies of your newsletter, in order that we may share with the public part of what your clan has to offer to its members.
