Welcome – Come in a look around

Welcome are you, to step into the past a bit and fulfill your longing to belong with the stories of our clansmen and women gone by and those still near and dear. Nay be your sighs for yearning of yesteryear, for their blood runs deep within us and leads us forward in honor of our heritage and the celebration of our life as a ‘Muir’ Scot.

      Hi! My father and grandfather are both named John Muir! Would love to know if we are also related to the naturalist!

    I am a Moore of descent of Gilchrist Muir. Obviously there is a departure of spelling in surname over the hundreds of years though Norway, Germany , and England before reaching colonial America.
    It has been slightly difficult to been difficult to trace my maternal line back to the point of Gilchrist Muir. From what I’ve read from other sites this, ancestral line qualifies me for membership.

    Per my Y DNA, I’m traceable to a people from County Antrim who were Cruthin/Dal nAraidi, who later moved to Ayrshire and were part of Clan Boyd, there. There are remarkable parallels in Clan Boyd Moores and Clan Muir, and as Muir was a Sept, this only makes sense. However, some of the claims made here (descendants of Picts, traceable to Fergus Mor, etc) are contrary to Y DNA. Please contact me as I’d like to discuss this further.

    HI, My name is James Adam Muir and I was born and live in Australia. My late father was born in Toronto, Canada and my grandfather in Govan, Scotland, killed in the later stages of WW2. I would like involvement with Clan Muir. Please advise how.

    I’ve traced my Scottish Muir heritage back to 1688! The last Muir in my family tree is my paternal great-great grandmother, and it’s through her paternal line that I’ve been able to get back to the 1600s. I’m very excited to learn more about Scottish culture and plan to visit someday! I would love to have more info about clan-ship!

    Researching my husband’s heritage for my children and future grandchildren now that we have a wedding in the planning stages. We know his great grandmother arrived in the USA with her sons in the early 1700’s and what happened after, but would love to know how she got here and where she stepped off the Scottish homeland.

    Hello, my name is Kathleen Muir and I live on Long Island (NY). I am the 4th generation of Muirs to be raised in the US, and from what I’ve learned my family came from Ayrshire. I always got asked if I was related to the famous John Muir, but I never quite knew what to tell people. I suppose in a way, we’re all kin in some way.

    Latha math,

    my family is originally from Dalkeith, Scotland but we migrated south to live in Manchester, England. Today I live in San Diego, California.

    Was wondering if you’ve seen Laura Muir, the famous runner. She always runs with the leading group and in the last lap starts sprinting, leaving everyone else behind. Her face is all screwed up on that last lap, and after the race she lies down on the ground to recover, because she puts everything she’s got into the race! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yyxQDb5AWa8

    Tapadh leit!

    Per my DNA test, I am 21% Scott. It appears I am from Clan Muir; however, I haven’t been able to trace my Moore heritage back to Scotland. Through Ancestry, I haven’t been successful past my 3rd Great Grandfather John Moore 1827-1905. I know where he is buried and have visited and cleaned his headstone as well as his wife Sara McGaha from Rutherfordton, NC. I recently received a hit on ancestry that says Jacob Moore from Mass. may be John’s father, but I haven’t been able to verify that. If I am from the Clan Muir descendants, I would love to become a member of this Society. Can you please advise me?

    My maiden name is Muir. I am so glad to have found this groip. I was recently told that our clan no longer exists and our family tartan is now called the Californian tartan. I was horrified that this could happen. Bollocks we dont exist,loud and proud clan Muir always I say. Would love to join this group

    Working on family genealogy from time to time, the Muirs have been the most elusive. A great-great-grandfather was Oliver Perry Muir, born in Kentucky in 1851 and died in Missouri in 1899, but I haven’t been able to trace farther back than that.
