The Clan Galbraith Society (CGS, formerly the Clan Galbraith Association - CGA), is actively seeking members interested in their Galbraith family history and Scottish customs.
We are a worldwide family with diverse interests bound together by our Scottish heritage.
The name Galbraith is reportedly from the Gaelic words
or “children of the foreigner Briton”.
Our newsletter title 'The Red Tower', was taken from ancient
verse, which was translated to the following:
The Red Tower is recognized as referring to Dumbarton Castle, former seat of the Royal House of Strathclyde.
