Family of Bruce International!

A Scottish heritage organization for the name and family of Bruce

Welcome to Family of Bruce International!

Ceud mle fàilte!  (Gaelic for a hundred thousand welcomes!)  We are happy to have you visit our site and explore our Family and organization.  The purpose of Family of Bruce International was well stated by our Chief, Lord Elgin, Andrew Douglas Alexander Thomas Bruce the 11th Earl of Elgin and 15th Earl of Kincardine:

“To develop interest in the Family and its history, to create a spirit of kinship among its members, and to record with pride the accomplishments of individual members of the Family for the next 1000 years.”
