Forrester coat of arms

Forrester coat of arms

My 20th great-grandfather, Adam Forrester, was the founder of a clan in Scotland. He became wealthy trading, and had permission to import grain into Scotland without paying duty.  His castle no longer exists, but there are parts of the churches he erected in his time that can be seen today. He and his son John held important political offices.  The both were Keepers of the Great Seal of Scotland.  The clan is without a chief and has been waiting for one for centuries.  I want to visit someday, but I do not think they will hand over any clan power to an American woman.
