  • Tartan Confusion

    I am a grandson of a Curry from North Florida (via S. Al, S. GA, and Bertie County, NC as far back as I can go). I see the Curry family listed under Currie, MacPhee, MacPherson, and MacDonald of Clanranald. I haven't gotten past Bertie, NC in my genealogy search (don't know for sure this is Scottish vs. Irish, or Scots-Irish), so do you know how I could find which of these is proper to wear, or would any be sufficient?

    There are no tartan police and you are a foreigner, so wear the one that most appeals to you!

      I just got the image of big men with large clubs with flashing blue and red tartan kilts...

      So just pick the best looking/sounding one, eh?

        You can also choose to wear the Flower of Scotland tartan.

        It was created to honour the late Roy Williamson, writer of both the words and music of 'The Flower of Scotland' now accepted by many as being Scotland's National Song. It has no connection with any clan although the design is based on the setting and thread count of the Gunn tartan (williamson being a sept of the Gunn clan). It is a beautiful blue and green tartan.

            Ohhhh Tig ! You better not arouse the wrathful spirit of "X Marks The Scot" ! Their members must prove they have a different tartan they're entitled to wear for every day of the week !

              I visited that site many years ago.... Once was enough, talk about pretentious and ill-informed......

              That sets me to wondering. Ken hoo thur's those known as 'Plastic Paddies'? Is thur a Scottish equivalent term?
