A few questions... and answers!!
A: No! Clan Logan may be listed as a sept to Clan Maclennan but that isn't the truth . Septs are families that established themselves on the lands of another Clan Chief and accepted his authority. Clan MacLennan insinuates we are a sept of them. We have paperwork from the Lord Lyon himself proving otherwise. Once we have a Clan Chief, he will clarify these issues once and for all.
1. Is Clan Logan a Sept???
2. You are Clan Chief Ambassador???? What's that???
A: As you may or may not know, Clans have Chiefs at the head and then they have Chieftains, people appointed by the Chief to represent them officially in other regions. Clan Logan is an armigerous clan for now, without a Chief. Therefore, although I act as a Chieftain I cannot have that title at the time being. I started as a representative for the province of Quebec a good 7 years ago with the Clan Logan Society international. Then I moved to France and lived in Bordeaux. I at that time, became Clan Logan representative of France for a few years. When I came back to live in Canada, I was promoted from Clan Logan representative to Chief Ambassador for the country as a whole because I have the experience and fluency in both official languages( English and French) to do it. I am to attend functions and find people related to the Logans across Canada.
3. Are you going to have a Chief soon??
A: That would be soooo nice! It would also restore our legal standing in Scotland and would resolve many issues relating to our Clan!! At this time, the research is continuing, we are making some headway but as you know it's very costly endeavour..done through genealogical research. there are rules to respect with Lord Lyon. We will see.
4. Are you Scottish??
A: That's a question I get quite often. My mother was Margaret Logan. I am Scottish by decent. Boys generally adopt their Mother's tartan and Clan. I choose to celebrate the mother I had everyday with great pride.
5. How does someone become a member?

Hoc Majorum Virtus:
This is the valour of my ancestors
A: It is easy to become a member. just fill out the form, it's
free!! Logans, names associated to Logan and the friends of
Logans are welcome. Everyone can become part of history
even if you have no Scottish roots. We exist for canadians
interested in history, people who want to be part of an active
Scottish clan. we also accept members from other countries.
The only expense you would have would be the Clan
newsletter "our valour". To get that, it's 20$ a year.
6. What are the advantages of membership?
A: You get to be part of a hug community of people. Members get to
participate in parades, highland games, events if they wish. People
who buy the newsletter will get the chance to give their news to
others in the Clan. It's an exclusive newsletter. They will also learn
more about the history of Clan Logan and their roots.
7. Is Clan Logan Bitter towards Clan Maclennan??

Letter dated August 21st, received from patrice macleod relating to the feather given as a gesture of friendship between clans.
A: NO! Not at all! We have been linked by history and we just think
differently over certain issues that will be resolved by our Chief,
once we find him. We are all part of Scottish history and have our
own merit. There is no point in being bitter. We believe it's
important to be respectful towards all Clans, including the
Maclennans. It's 2017, let's put the rivalry aside!!!
