12 February 2019 - This is a new addition to our Clan MacFarlane Worldwide website. We've decided that there is so much to share about CMW, our shared heritage, and more, then why not a blog? So why not?
First - what shall we call it? Well... because CMW is truly a global group, I've decided the Diaspora is appropriate. Why? Because the Scots have scattered around the globe. If you visit our CMW facebook page, you will find that we have members on our page from just about every reach of the globe. So the Diaspora reflects our differences as well as shared heritage. It is my hope that our blog will do this too.
If you research the Scottish Diaspora, and you open the Wikipedia link about the Diaspora, it lists the countries where our Scots are now concentrated: United States, Canada, Australia, Ireland, England, New Zealand, Argentina, Chile and Brazil. However, there is also a long-standing history of Scots in Poland I happen to be of the opinion that the Scots are absolutely everywhere.
During the celebration of the 2014 Homecoming, a project was sponsored where over 300 panels were brought together from Scottish communities from around the world, to create one large beautiful tapestry exhibit. If you want to gather more information about the Diaspora, the 2014 Homecoming tapestry project, you can find it here:
