Welcome to Clan Baird. I am very honoured to have been elected to be Commander of our Clan at the Baird Family Convention in Edinburgh, in August 2019.
A lot has been happening since and I am trying, with the help of Clan Baird Society Worldwide in the US, to start to draw all the strands of the Clan together. We are spread all over the world, but my aim is to have a more formalised representation for our Clan in Canada, Australia and New Zealand which, in with the States and the UK, covers the main distribution of our family and will bring us all closer as a Clan.
We have been without a leader for many centuries, but now we can do so much more to strengthen the Clan's standing in the world. We come from many continents, all walks of life and are of all ages, united by the common bond of family and an interest in where we all come from. This interest takes many forms, some are interested in locating their family roots, others enjoy Highland Games held worldwide and many enjoy travelling to Baird sites of interest in Scotland.
Whatever your interest, I give you a very warm welcome to all connected to the name of Baird and the many other spellings associated with it and I hope you enjoy searching our website and hopefully going away with the information you were looking for.
Richard Baird of Rickarton, Ury and Lochwood
Commander of Clan Baird
