About the project

The project was originally established in October 2001 as the Scottish Clans DNA Project and merged with the Scotland DNA Project in 2012.

Our Mission

  • To provide DNA information for all clans and families of Scottish ancestry
  • To provide reference sources whereby individuals can find best-match DNA results and genealogy information
  • To provide education and information on genetic genealogy

Project Profile

  • The Project welcomes individuals who have a Scottish lineage on their own direct paternal (yDNA) or maternal (mtDNA) line of descent.
  • Scottish DNA Project Blog – our blog aims to keep participants and the wider genetic community updated in an informal manner about project news, results and developments http://scottishdna.blogspot.com/
  • The Scot-DNA mailing list scot-dna@rootsweb.com is administered by Lauren Boyd: confido@gmail.com
