Isles of the Hebrides DNA Project - Goals

The goals of this DNA Project are to


  • show any common DNA ancestry between the different surnames and Clans of the Isles of the Hebrides;
  • show our Isles Ancestors' migration patterns, and to which ancient culture or history they were a part of -- Viking, Norse, Celtic, Pict, Gravetian, etc...;
  • connect our families beyond any archival evidence presently available; and
  • unite both the DNA and genealogical evdience to help us find a more complete answer to a multitude of questions about our ancestry.
All members must have a direct paternal (for Y-DNA) or direct paternal (for mt-DNA) in order to join this Project.
