Welcome to CDSUM!

Clan Donnachaidh Society Upper Midwest (CDSUM) was created to keep the rich customs and history of Scotland alive. Our members consist of families of scottish heritage from over 50 family names, and is considerd by many historians to be among the oldest in scotland. By creating a midwest branch we are able to keep members and the public informed at various events both locally and regionally. We are dedicated to helping curious onlookers search out their identity while displaying all our heritage has to offer. Visit us at an upcomming Highland Games in your area to find out more, or better yet become a member and join in the fun! Membership is open to all.
