The Mackenzie clan come from the Highlands of Scotland and as one of the largest clans they dominated a wide area comprising nearly all of the County of Ross and Cromarty, overflowing into Sutherland and Inverness-shire. The Clan experienced several waves of emigration and this project seeks to identify family groups who are likely related through their yDNA results. The names of MacKenzie, McKenzie and McKinzie are the same name. Go to http://www.electricscotland.com/mackenzie for more information. Males are encouraged to order a Y-DNA37 or a Y-DNA67 marker test so they can be placed in family groupings.
