Scottish DNA Project update

News from Alasdair MacDonald of the Scottish DNA Project at the University of Strathclyde:

1. The Scottish DNA Project currently has over 4500 participants.

2. The merger of the Scottish and Scotland Projects is nearing completion. Some results still have to be sorted on the result pages.

3. On the Y-DNA results page insert 5000 into the default page size to see all the results (give it time to open).

4. Our project blog can be found at

5. We appreciate your support and hope you will recommend the project to you matches who qualify for the Project. The project welcomes individuals who have a Scottish lineage on their own direct paternal (yDNA) or maternal (mtDNA) line of descent. For example - father > grandfather > great-grandfather > great-great-grandfather or mother > grandmother > great-grandmother > great-great-grandmother etc.

There's also a sale on at Family TreeDNA until midnight tonight (Saturday), if you're thinking of signing up. The site is at
