Scots around the country will be celebrating their heritage on april 6 'tartan day' this year.
How much do you know about your scot heritage and how your ancestors got here?

Do you know which clan you belong to? Do you do any ancestory searching? Do you know which tartans (more than one for each clan) that your clan wears?

Tell us abit about yourself, and we even might find some people who even belong to same clans!

I'm not Scottish but I am surprised at the number of people who were that signed the Declaration of Independence. I didn't realize the Scottish movement was so prevalent in the US. Very informative article. Well done.

it is very hard to find a patriotic Jock who actually lives there, especially celebrity jocks like Sean Connery and Rod Stewart (born in London)

I have my family on my paternal side traced back to england and scotland :) Gramas mum maiden name Moray, which means I am clan Murray :) I went to visit Blair castle a few years ago in scotland, one of the Murray clan castles :)

Kilt at cleaners as we speak, looking for a good pub to celebrate at :)

Rockford has a wonderful celtish fest every year too in the summer, fab music, food, sellers stalls, a pipe band parade and dancing :)

Would have loved to have made it there again this year but lots to do here as well:)

cheers everyone !

why not have a law so that all Jocks MUST wear wee kilties and tartan tammies, so we know who they are? A lot in our Government are disguised as normal people.

Get a life and go whinge on a political thread then. Being racist is a horrible thing to be, very sad and pathetic that you have to whinge about people you dont like and toss in the race card...if you dont like them then vote ukip or bnp.
I am english AND scottish and I take people for who, they are not what they are...only sad people do that anymore.

Scots are not a race. They are a sort of plague which descend upon London and then either drinks outside kings Cross station or runs our government .

heh heh heh...its just a benefits scrounger posting from their ghetto council house POd because his employment seekers allowance isnt enough to buy the lager the lout likes to drink and prolly hangs with his illegal immigrant traveler friends who get more money than he does LOL !

always believed ..if you are not part of the solution, then you are part of the problem.

So if this tosser thinks slamming a culture because of a few bad apples instead of getting off his fat lazy cider soaked bum to actually do something besides whinge, then he DESERVES to be ruled by a superior culture. I am betting too that they arent english either, as most scots and english have some ancestors in common on one side of the family or other :)Most of the civilised people here dont speak like this over here , so dont let him fool ya...

Im proud to be both scots AND english, and ashamed of people like this even living in my gorgeouse GREAT Britian !

<quoted text>aren't you actually an American? most real scots don't constantly boast about being a tartan scotsman - only professional Scotsmen and Americans.
PS, most scots never see a kilt or bagpipes their whole lives.
American with now permanent residency in england,married to an awesome english man, my heritage is scots english,and i've been to scotland and have seen plenty of kilts and pipes and even had a gaelic wedding.

I am VERY proud of my heritage and have my ancestry traced to scotland via paternal grandmother and england via paternal grandfather.

And one article does not constitute 'constantly boasting' and in all fairness if you read my other posts on other threads, I spend more time regaling my friends about my experiences in england.

Belonging to both the national trust and english heritage and being a huge history buff I dont just talk the talk, I walk it and live it and love it. And yes as soon able able i also will be involved in politics because if you DO read my other threads I DO think alot of changes are in order for the well being of this country.

But I dont go about laying the blame on the polititions because of them being any particular nationality...I blame them because they made bad descisions, and I blame people who moan and dont get involved to change it... something I seriousely look forward to.

cheers :)

you must admit though, that the Scots have hardly been under-represented in government over the last 100 years. This leads to accusations of hypocrisy when they demand less "interference" from England. But please avoid the Hollywood and Mel Gibson versions of Scottish history . I expect you know that Wallace and the Bruce were not scots at all, but Normans.
I see what you mean, but also, not all scots want independence, most see that as something that traditionalists would like, but in all fairness alot of scots really dont want a omplete seperation.
very much like alot of brits don want to be a part of the EU, wanting to retain our national heritage and would at least to have liked the opportunity to have a say and vote on it.

Im not a huge fan of Brown, I havent sussed cameron yet but like a few things he wants, and so far I agree with ukips ideas on a lot of things. The problem here tho isnt the person who will be mp..your not voting for a person like we did in the states, you vote for a party here, regardless whether their choice of leader is scots, english,german, or whatever ancestory. If Brown was a traditional patriotic scot wanting them to have back 'their' country, you can bet he would have done alot more to push it whilst in office..when in fact he often distanced himself instead..example..the lockerbie bomber incident...These men dont act on their nationality, they act on their partys wants. And until such a day came that brits voted more for WHOM they wanted for mp instead of just a party, we wont see a difference...

thats why I am researching VERY carefull ALL partys before I have the right to vote myself..and you can bet that when I have finally recieved my citizenship next year, I WILL be out reasearching, campagning and trying to do SOMETHING, ANYTHING I can to make a difference...and when that happens and the right person/party is there, I dont care if he is scots, english, or even martian ! I will vote for the people that will do their best for this country.

and yes...anyone scots or otherwise worth their salt with any intelligence KNOWS braveheart had enormouse amounts of artistic license...but it wasnt written as a history lecture for students then either was it..LOL....I prefer Simon Schamas history of britian bbc miniseries myself :) Very articulate but also a fabulouse way of drawing you in to learn history almost as if you were watching a movie.:)
cheers !!:):)

no-one ever voted for Broon as a leader of the UK, only as a constituent MP.

agreed..thats why learning about the system of voting party instead of individual is important to me. So far I am not over impressed but still learning about all partys involved. Unfortunately we are rather stuck with whomever we get by voting party, not person for the job...
