"How many did you catch?", the King asked his serf. "Gut three," the serf replied in his best Scottish brogue.This story is but one possibility of how we came to be known as "Guthrie". We know that our heritage and ancestry is deep and wide. Members of Clan Guthrie USA can access and share resources to identify ancient kin, see where our paths cross, and how far back our history goes.
Researching Your Family Ancestry
At least 200 adult Guthries immigrated to America and put down roots in various parts of the country between 1650 and the late 1800's.
A popular source of research for beginning Guthrie genealogists is Lawrence Guthrie's book, "Guthrie and Allied Families."
Originally printed in 1933, this book was reprinted by Mabel Guthrie Lee in 1985.

Membership RosterClan Guthrie USA maintains a membership roster that contains a field for genealogy information. We use a code that identifies the earliest Guthrie ancestor to which a member can be traced. An update of this roster is provided to each member of Clan Guthrie annually. By referring to this code, you can see if a link has been made in a family pedigree chart to an earlier ancestor (i.e., if the code changes, a new ancestor has been established). This system is very useful and convenient. By scanning the membership roster genealogy reference codes, you can locate clan members most closely related to you.
Guthrie Genealogy information is provided by dedicated clan members, with a very special thanks for all of Lolita Guthrie's years of research and service.
