MacFarlane DNA Project
This Project aims to find out what DNA says about our ancestry. Who are we and where did we come from? We know that our clan chiefs descended from the earls of Lennox, but can we confirm the traditional descent of the earls and their ancestors the mormaers of Lennox from the kings of Munster? Do all those with the surname MacFarlane (of any of the over 1,530 variant spellings) have a common ancestor? Can we identify cadet houses, including the current heir-male of our chiefs? Which associated Septs were originally Macfarlanes? DNA testing will help us find the answers to these questions and more.
