About us

According to Black's The Surnames of Scotland, Finlayson and Finlaison are English forms of the Gaelic MacFhionnlaigh, 'son of Finlay'.

This project's goal is to use DNA in conjunction with traditional genealogy. Providing Finlayson pedigrees will strengthen the scope of this project. There are many different lineages, and we would like to increases our database. Y-DNA from an appropriate Finlayson male is required and will offer valuable information for your family tree.

To date we have participants in the major haplogroups I2 and R1b.
