Join our DNA Project


The Clan Galbraith Society (CGS, formerly the Clan Galbraith Association - CGA), is actively seeking members interested in their Galbraith family history and Scottish customs.

We are a worldwide family with diverse interests bound together by our Scottish heritage.

The name Galbraith is reportedly from the Gaelic words “Clan-a-Bhreatannich” or “children of the foreigner Briton”. Our newsletter title 'The Red Tower', was taken from ancient verse, which was translated to the following:

Galbraith of the Red Tower
Noblest of the Albannic Race, thy pedigree

The Red Tower is recognized as referring to Dumbarton Castle, former seat of the Royal House of Strathclyde.

Membership is open to those persons related by blood or marriage to the Galbraith Clan, or who can establish a reasonable presumption of direct descent from an ancestor meeting the name requirement. This shall include the surnames: Calbreath, Colbath, Colbreath, Culbreath, Galberth, Galbreath, Galbreth, Gilbraith, Gilbreath, Gilbreth, Gilreath, Kilbreath, Kilbreth, Kulbeth, or any of the other spelling variants of the Galbraith surname.
