The Clan Pringle Association is looking for volunteers to help other Pringles around the world with their research into Pringle family history and genealogy. If you are able to help other Pringles with their genealogy please contact us. We are also actively trying to find our rightful clan chief, and this will also need genealogical research.
Many Pringles around the world have uploaded their Family Tree’s onto www.myheritage.com and www.ancestry.com. If you join these sites you will be able to link your tree with theirs and further extend yours. However they are both paysites and only members can see the information, so it would be helpful if Pringles would enter their family trees on the this free site: www.wikitree.com/genealogy/pringle. This will help other Pringles with their research and to link Pringles together.
