Clan Smith Society publishes a small newsletter called Forge Ahead, which comes out about four times a year.  Peggy and Newman Smith are the compilers of the newsletter.  We took the name for our newsletter from the title of an editorial that member Dan Smith wrote for the publication The Scottish Banner.

For a copy of our latest newsletter, please send us a self-addressed stamped envelope and we will be glad to sent it to you.
