About us

The MacKenzie project was begun in 2003. DNA testing may be able to prove or disprove some of the traditional genealogies of the MacKenzie clan. Not all surnames in the project have had traditional genealogies preserved so DNA may help participants to find related people so they can compare their knowledge and add to the clan’s lore.

TO UNDERSTAND HOW TO READ THE RESULTS, GO TO NEWS. An excellent tutorial on DNA is found on the Blair Surname site called DNA 101.

Recommended books on DNA in general are: Emily Aulicino, Genetic Genealogy:The Basics and Beyond; Blaine T Bettinger, The Family Tree Guide to DNA Testing and Genetic Genealogy; David R Dowell, NextGen Genealogy: The DNA Connection; Spencer Wells, Deep Ancestry (Haplogroups)

Please note that the FTDNA Surname Group Administrators are not FTDNA employees. They do not receive any form of financial payment or any other incentive or reimbursement.

This project uses the standards of the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation 2017, the most recent editions of FTDNA’s Terms, the Genetic Genealogy Standards, and ISOGG’s guidance for Project Administrators.
