The MacFarlane Surname Project
A clan of the House of Lennox. Because of the "Family Finder" (autosomal block) DNA test we accept anyone who descends from a MacFarlane (of any of the over 1,530 variant spellings), or Lennox because our chiefs sprang from the old earls thereof, or someone with a Sept surname (any variant) within a dozen generations; this overides the old limitation (mentioned in "Requirements" below) to participation by males only bearing these surnames. This is the official DNA project of the Clan MacFarlane Society, Australia, Inc. (http://clanmacfarlane.org.au/), and also of Clan MacFarlane Worldwide, Inc. (http://clanmacfarlane.org/), and it is the oldest (founded in 2004) and largest* such MacFarlane project in the world. [*The bigger the database the better for a DNA project's participants.] This project aims to find out what DNA says about the ancient earldom of Lennox, clan MacFarlane and Sept ancestry. Who are we and where did we come from? Do all with the surname MacFarlane, any variant, have a common ancestor? Which associated Septs were originally MacFarlanes? DNA testing will help us find the answers to these questions and more. Anyone who bears the Lennox surname or any variation of the MacFarlane surname or any variant of the Sept surnames is eligible to join this project. [But see first sentence above.] Please check the list below to see if you find your surname there. To participate meaningfully in this project, you will need to share your ancestry back to the earliest known MacFarlane/etc. in the form of a pedigree chart, family group sheets, or a GEDCOM file. You do not need to be a member of any of the clan Macfarlane societies in the world to participate, although you may wish to make such an association in order to meet many more of your probable kin.
