Welcome to the McGraw Surname Project! Our mission is to explore the rich genetic history of individuals and families bearing variants of the surname "Mac Craith" (McGraw, MacGraw, Megraw, McGrath, McGrew, Magrath, etc). We are especially interested in those whose paternal lineage traces back to the nine counties in the historic Irish province of Ulster: Down, Antrim, Tyrone, Londonderry, Donegal, Fermanagh, Cavan, Monaghan and Armagh. Whether you have a confirmed connection to these regions or suspect ancestral ties, we invite you to join us. Even if your heritage lies outside of these counties, or is simply unknown, we encourage anyone with a paternal lineage bearing one of the surnames to join as your participation will enrich our understanding of the genetic histories for these family names. By harnessing the power of Y-DNA testing, our project aims to unravel the mysteries of the past and forge meaningful connections across generations. Your participation is vital, as your unique genetic story will significantly contribute to our collective understanding of paternal heritage for these surnames. Together, we can document the tapestry of genetic history for McGraw (and variant) families worldwide. Please consider joining us on this journey of discovery into your own roots! We look forward to including you as an integral part of our mission.
