The McNeely Surname Project


PROJECT OVERVIEW: The McNeely Family Tree DNA Project was launched in May 2004 and in less than 10 years? time has gained over 60 project members. While the geographic base of this surname and its variants once spanned a single region, the McNeely diaspora today literally spans the globe. PROJECT BACKGROUND: In order to try to untangle and identify the major McNeely descent lines, we have started the McNeely Project with the goal of setting up subgroups and placing all participants whose DNA is a match into the same subgroup (with a skeletal descent chart for each participant) so that it will be easy for the future McNeely researcher who has the results of a DNA test for a male McNeely from his/her line to identify which line is his/hers. These subgroups aspire to identify recent genetic descent and kinship (10?s to 100?s of years), historical and genetic associations of current surnames to their original Gaelic surnames and septs (More distant past) and to SNP assignment (1000+ years). PROJECT HISTORY: The McNeely Family Tree DNA Project was created in the course of looking for the family of origin for ROBERT MCNEELY, who was born before 1785 in an unknown locale and died summer of 1827 in The USA. He fathered nine sons who lived to adulthood and a number of McNeely lines that may or may not be related were located. Often, McNeelys who appeared to be unrelated were living in the same places in the same time periods, but despite the geographic overlap, there is no apparent connection between the groups. IMPORTANT NOTES: Please be sure to review the information at the "Results" tab and the "News" tab (both above) as well as the information at the "Y-Results" tab (also above). PLEASE NOTE THAT THERE IS NOW A SEPARATE NEELY PROJECT. However, as of October 2009, an established DNA link between a McNeely and a Neely line was determined, and any Neely who would like to join the McNeely Project as well as the Neely Project is welcome to do so.
