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.
