The MacVicar DNA Project is open to anyone with a MacVicar ancestor and a suitable Y-DNA donor who is a direct-line MacVicar. All spelling variations are welcome—McVicar, McVikker, Vicars, etc. Direct-male-line MacVicars can order a Y-DNA 37-marker test (Y37) or even better, Y67. This project's goal is to use DNA in conjunction with traditional genealogy. Providing MacVicar pedigrees will strengthen the scope of this project. There are different lineages, and increasing our database will better explore these lineages. Y-DNA from an appropriate MacVicar male can offer valuable information for your family tree.
