Clan Wallace Society Membership

Membership in the Clan Wallace Society is extended to the Clan and Family of Wallace (various spellings), those related to them by blood or by marriage, and to anyone else having an interest in the purposes of the Society, which are: Educational, with emphasis on the history of Scotland, its public figures, such as Sir William Wallace, the National Hero of Scotland who suffered martydom for his country in 1305, its Clans and the heritage and achievements of those of Scottish descent.
