Dear Lee, Thank you for your message of support, and I certainly do appreciate your comments. We work very hard to bring factual and informative information to members of the Clan Akins Society in an effort to help them discover the many interesting and culturally enriching aspects of their wonderful Celtic heritage. Our Clan is certainly every bit as ancient and legitimate as any other. Unfortunately it has only been recently that it, as well as many others, have been able to reorganize through the efforts of a few dedicated individuals in order to bring it once again to the surface after many years of repression which followed the persecution of the Scottish people by our English enemies. We our determined however to preserve and uplift our cultural heritage despite the antagonism of the despised Saxons who have always sought to bring about our downfall. Alba gu brath! - Scotland Forever!
