Wardlaw / Wardlow / Wardlawe / Wardloe / Wardlaw-Ramsay / Mark-Wardlaw
Welcome to the Clan Wardlaw Association website!
We have lots of Wardlaw information for everyone, and lots of great things going on! Be sure to visit often and we hope you can join us!! We have members from the countries shown here with their flags! Wardlaws are truly international!!
Check out our Wardlaw trees on Ancestry.com ~ 'America Wardlaws' and 'Scotland Wardlaws'.
I updated the website to include the test results: http://www.familytreedna.com/public/wardlaw/
When you go to this website, look at all the tabs to see results and lots of other neat stuff! As for American Wardlaws descended from Immigrant Robert Wardlaw, we are missing participants for the following lines: James Wardlaw (C1), Joseph Wardlaw (C5), and Margaret Wardlaw (C7).
The priority for the Wardlaw DNA Project is to enlist Wardlaws in Scotland. More specifically, we need Wardlaw men to submit YDNA37 marker tests or greater.
Curiously, our present Wardlaw YDNA tests match men with different surnames. For whatever reason, these non-Wardlaws are reluctant to join the project. Their joining would greatly enhance our efforts … hopefully they will join one day. Their YDNA proves their Wardlaw heritage.
As for the Family Finder Tests, I recently noticed several connections to descendants of the “Wardloe” family. This could be significant!
Finally, we need to encourage ALL Family Finder test participants to review their matches regularly and contact others with the Wardlaw/Wardlow/Wardloe name listed. The more people we have in the project, the better our analysis.

2014 Scotland clan gathering scrapped over cost concerns
PLANS for a second Gathering of the Clans on the eve of the 2014 independence referendum have been scrapped.
The Gathering that was due to be held in Stirling as part of the Homecoming celebrations has been axed due to financial concerns.
It was due to follow on from the 2009 event in Edinburgh, which attracted about 47,000 people and generated £10.4 million for the Scottish economy.
Criticism was made after the private company running the event collapsed, despite receiving £500,000 in grants and £180,000 from the Scottish Government. Some 100 creditors are still owed about £300,000.
Clan leaders around the world have been told the 2014 event is no longer on the table – disappointing those in America, Canada and Australia who planned to travel for the event.
The main Homecoming event will now be Bannockburn 700, a battle re-enactment in June to be run by the National Trust of Scotland. However, there will be no tented village, parade or pageant, it is understood.

A note from the creator of these terrific Rosettes and a link to her really creative site:
Hi Diane, Thanks so much for getting in touch and for your kind comments! I'm so pleased that you like the brooches and that they're proving to be popular. My Dad passed on to me a great love and admiration for the history of Scotland and its Clans, and it's wonderful to know that the Clan system is still flourishing, be it here or 'across the pond' in the big ol' US of A.

See the page above, 'Books of Interest' for reprints of the book "Genealogy of the Wardlaw Family" available for purchase.
Please remember when searching for 'Wardlaw' on eBay or other places, the 'Wardlaw Manuscript' is a book on the place name of 'Ward Law' hill in Inverness and is not anything about the 'Wardlaws', but only a history of the Frasier and Lovat families in that area. This is covered in my book 'Ancestral Earth', with pictures of the 'Wardlaw Church' there, as well as the cemetery. This place has no Wardlaw family connections at all.
