Scottish Clans DNA Project
February 2008 Update

Dear All:
YDNA Results:
The  latest update of the Y DNA Results (18 Jan 2008) is  posted in the files at on
 the project web site  at  You can request access to this
web site by  emailing Charlotte Broun at This
Y DNA Masterdase contains over  2100 Y Dna resultsThe Scottish Clans DNA
Masterdase includes both the Family Tree DNA results and results from numerous
other  sources that are sent to us.
Family Tree DNA Testing Program:
The Family Tree DNA alone has over 1000 results posted. Our project is now in the
Top 5 of all projects listed at Family Tree DNA. I haven't counted the total number
of tests and the upgrades orders, but it has to be one of the largest in the total DNA
tests completed.
The results of the Family Tree are beginning to show some results from
DNA matches. I will post these results to the web site
for everyone. But a summary shows:
Unique Haplogroups:
A: YDNA-12 Markers
     486 Results with over 70% having a 12/12 match with others
      Top is 32 exact unique match
B:  YDNA -25 Markers
      674 Results with 94 having a 25/25 exact match with others
      Top being a group of 8 exact unique match.
C: YDNA-37 Markers
     646 Results with 12 having a 37/37 match with others
     Six pairs of 2 unique exact unique match
D: YDNA -67 Markers
     273 Results with 4 exact unique match with others
      2 groups of 2 matching. (many with less than 3 genetic distance)
New Software Analysis:
We've added two new Software programs ( DNA-PAT & TNG ). They are both 
 on the  server at: These will provide some useful data and are also 
  for your use to post family trees to compare  paper documentation and to
assist in  analyzing your own  DNA match.
Note that you need  to establish a user name  and password for each
software program.  Everyone is welcome to use this software by merely
 registering and requesting a username. This is free and provided as a
service by the Scottish DNA project.  Access to these programs are at :
Analysis using the Master Database:
The Master Database  is a "split screen" version of the  Scot DNA Results that
we receive. You can remove the  split screen by merely going under  the
Tabs on the top  and remove the splits screen.  
To determine if there is a potential match would merely:
a. Add your specific DNA results in line 16
b. Scroll the screen to each DNA entry to compare the results.
There is also the capability of using the arrows to set a particular group of test
scores in the box and that will then bring up all tests that match that particular
setting. Charlotte Broun gets the credit for this particular creative method :-).
Be careful to note that you are then rearranging all the results entries so only
 change one DYS setting at a time to compare results.
MtDNA Status:
There are also now 313  results in the MtDNA database. This will be posted on the
My Family web site in the next few days.
DNA Results from Other Projects:
Some of you may also have results from other Labs or other Clan and Surname projects
and also want to be included in this database
You can send your test results to or to
Marsha at:    She  will then convert to the standard
format for the Master database.
Online Video and Web Conference:
There is also a new free service for online web conferencing available to anyone
as well. This  provides for Power Point, Whiteboard, audio, etc. The Clans and
Families can then hold a online discussion on the potential  matches among their
own groups and compare their ancestry directly online.
The techie people (level 5 geek please) can also create a video online that
can show their results and family tree to send to other interested family
members :-).
Details at
Please drop me an email to schedule this.
Main Scottish DNA Web Site:
There is a new main website established at :  These updates will be posted there
as well as links to other Clan, Family, surname DNA projects.
The software for analyzing is also hosted here.

We would also appreciate it very much if you would let other Scottish Descendants
 and Clan members know of our group. Please feel free to forward this posting
or the URL to the web site:  to anyone (or group)
that you think might be interested.

Best Regards
