I am looking for any information on the surname Donachie
Sept to the Clan Donnachaidh (Robertson).

Where they lived, when or why the name was changed from Donnachaidh to Donachie. Current variations of the surname
(ie. Dunachy, Donachy, Donacie, etc.) Migration patterns.

This is in connection with my surname research, and Y-DNA
match list.

My mother was a Dunachie. Her ancestors originated from Ireland, and her great grandfather started off as Mickel or Michael Donahoe or Donagho. He was born in County Mayo in 1840, and he moved to Scotland where at some point his name changed to Dunachie. He died in 1872, and his son, James carried on the Dunachie name.
