About us

Please understand that this is a collaborative research project.

Many people contribute their research, knowledge, and insights into this larger project.  This project recognizes that all material here is from a collaborative process.

We require the active participation of each member to further this genealogical and genetic study of our surnames and their place in history.

Visit our new project website at for much more information on the Donnachaidh DNA Project.

Please understand that
There is not one single Y-DNA test to take but a series of DNA tests to continually dig deeper into our histories.

The Clan Donnachaidh DNA Project invites people of Scottish, Irish, and English heritage,
worldwide, who bear the surnames of our Clan (Donachie, Duncan, Robertson, Reid, McConnachie) or any of the septs of our clan listed at to participate in this Y-DNA surname project. We are trying to test the many different family lines that are within the Donachie, Duncan, Robertson, McConnachie, and Reid families.

We are looking for participants or sponsors of participants that will participant, provide genealogy information, & correspond with their new DNA matches.

This project is dedicated to these family names worldwide. The overall project's plan is to encourage as many members of our families to test in order to more completely understand the deep origins of the our families in the British Isles. Male descendants from around the world are invited to join the project to test their Y-DNA.  

There is not one single Y-DNA test to take but a series of DNA tests to continually dig deeper into our histories.
