Dear Jim:

Yes, it does cover Scotland ( most of the UK)
for that matter. There is only a very loose
correlation between the Haplogroup and the
location. There is lots of work going on to
try and tighten up the correlation, but I think
that is many many years away.

You can click on the link below to begin the
process for your DNA test. Our project is under the
geographic projects > S

Please look carefully at the various tests that are
available. We are, in general, recommending the
25 or the new 37 marker test in order to establish
any meaningful results. The 12 marker test can
provide some initial indications of a negative or
non - connection, but is usually too general to
indicate any positive relationships. However, You
are welcome to send in a 12 marker test for
comparison. There is also a mtDNA results coming
in but it is still early in that process.

There is also a Scottish DNA mailing list and Web site
that you can join. Both of these are free
of course, and also provide status reports
and sharing of information of the various
DNA results. You would join the mailing list in
the normal way by sending an email to
with the one word
in the body of the message. There is also a wealth
of info available in this mailing list archives at <>;

The web site is available by sending a email to
Charlotte Broun at:
or to

You may already have DNA results, or once
you get your results, and then want to share in the
database. You would then merely forward to
Marsha at the email address : <>
She will translate those results into the format that
is used in the database.

We would also appreciate it very much if you
would let other Scottish Descendants and Clan
members know of our group.

Thanks again for joining and sharing.

Best Regards
John A Hansen
