About us

Welcome to the Chegau Mi'kmaq family DNA project. The purpose of the DNA project is to confirm Mi'kmaq Tribe clan lineages (mtDNA and yDNA haplogroups) and the autosomal genetic relationship of a descendant of a Mi'kmaq clan lineage to a Mi'kmaq ancestor for the Mi’kmaq Tribe Genetic tree. The Mi’kmaq Tribe Genetic tree is located at https://www.ancestry.ca. You can search for the tree by member profile: Donna Launay or by public member trees: Mi'kmaq Tribe Genetic Tree. There is also a link to the tree under the links section of this site. Please upload your AncestryDNA™, 23andMe©, or MyHeritage™ autosomal DNA data to FamilyTreeDNA and join the DNA project for free. The instructions to upload your DNA is under the links section of this web page. The Turtle Island Genealogy discussion group located under Discussion on the links page is a closed Facebook group created for people of Turtle Island ancestry that are researching their family and tribal genealogy. Please request to join through Facebook if you would like to participate in the group discussion. All financial donations to the project will be used to fund participants that do not have the financial ability to pay for a DNA test or to test a descendant of an un-named ancestor on the tree to determine their DNA haplogroup and/or their relationship to other lineages on the tree for research purposes. Thank you for your participation!
