Clan Kerr of the United States and North America is a non-profit corporation in the State of Florida. Our activities begun informally in the early 1990’s along the American East Coast, but did not involve significant numbers until those associating with our endeavors reached into the hundreds, at which time it was decided to form a national organization. Clan Kerr membership today surpasses three hundred in the United States and several foreign countries and continues to grow rapidly. Correspondence with the current Kerr leadership in Scotland has further established CLANKERR’s activities and growth in North America. The Clan is authorized to use the related crests, coats of arms, badges, tartans, and paraphenalia associated with membership.
The Clan's objective and purpose is:
- to encourage fraternization among its members and the general public concerning the acquisition, compilation, preservation and distribution of information of historical and genealogical interest to those with the surname Kerr, Karr, Car, Ker, Kier and other variants of the Scottish name Carr and the recognized Septs of Clan Kerr in Scotland.
- The Clan shall provide a public forum for discussion groups, lectures, and musical programs addressing issues of Scottish Cultural Heritage.
- The Clan will participate in Scottish Highland and Celtic Games held annually throughout the United States and North America.
- The Clan will cooperate with other Scottish non-profit clan organizations within its sphere which have like interests in disseminating information of an educational and heritage nature which may be of value to its members.
