I am very excited to announce the commencement of a Macnab surname yDNA project that we hope will add much to our understanding of the origins of our Clan, how the cadet houses connect, and how and where each of you fits into the Clan at large.
This initial project, testing yDNA, will involve males with the surname Macnab only. We plan in the future to add projects that a broader base of our Clan can participate in.
Our Shennachie, Loraine Smith, has agreed to be "point man" for this project, and you will find elsewhere her outline of the project, what we hope to accomplish and why we are starting with yDNA.
We believe that this project has the potential to allow us to leave a tremendous legacy for the Clansmen of the future (our descendants), to add valuable information to the historical record of our Clan, and to assist in unravelling some of the mysteries of the ancient history of the British Isles in general and Scotland in particular.
We hope that as many of you as possible will join us in making this project a success.
Jamie Macnab of Macnab
