The McClellan Surname Project
This group has been established for male participants with the surname McClellan and other closely related spellings. Those with the original name Cleland and related spellings are also invited to participate. The objective is to determine relationships that might be difficult to prove using traditional methods of genealogical research. For example, several separate lines appear in early Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina records and because their earlier origins have not been proven their relationship is unknown. Also, descendant lines to these families appear valid in some cases but questionable in others because of lost or missing records. DNA testing should help establish these relationships and unproven lines.
