Does anybody have particulars on "the MacRae DNA study"?
I've only heard bits and pieces in passing...

Hi! Richard,

With reference to DNA testing all I know is that quite a few clan members from Australia and overseas have sent in their DNA recently so as to eventually elect a new chief for the clan. Many seem to think that it should go to a MacKenzie. Anyway it will be interesting to see if they find out which McRae is the right line. Now that the MacRae gathering is over in Scotland we may find out more about it. I know nothing about other DNA sampling.

Dear Richard:
I have established a DNA group of McRaes. If you are interested, please contact me, as I am the group coordinator and only a participant or the coordinator can access the records. Hope this help. Mary Ann McRae

Richard -- I am the coordinator for a DNA study at the Sorenson Genomics Relative Genetics program here in America. Will be glad to send you particulars you would need to join our group. The more participants we obtain, the easier it will be to determine relatedness, and it safeguards privacy.
All that is needed is to use the swab they send you on the inside of your cheek. Mary Ann McRae

There is a large Rea (and all variants of the name, including MacRae) surname DNA study being run by Gary Rea at www.familytreedna.com. There are some interesting results coming in which show a genetic tie-in between the Rea and McRae names.

I am not sure...as to what "the MacRae DNA study" is...All I know is that I watched a facinating programme on our Government T.V. Channel that showed that contrary to what was popular belief..that ALL SCOTS were mixed Blood with Scandanavian..(Viking Invaders) was not true due to DNA testing. It was true especially of the East coast of Scotland ..but..that the area around MacRae Territory, and for that matter most of Western Scotland Highlands, NOT only contained NO Viking DNA, but was proved through testing,to be different to any other Celtic Blood in Europe...and was therefore pure and unadulterated....(Not sure if this is what you mean..???)

There is mentioned here amoung the responses a study regarding the genetic character of the Highlanders, specifically those living in Kintail and along the East coast of Scotland. And I was wondering if someone could provide a link or some more detailed information regarding that?
