The founding meeting is open to anyone who has experience or an interest in using DNA for genealogical or family history research. Its goal is to establish a forum for:
sharing and comparing results of research in genetic genealogy
encouraging the use of genetic genealogy within the British Isles with a particular focus on Scotland (anyone within reach of Glasgow is welcome to attend)
administrators of DNA surname, geographical and haplogroup projects to exchange ideas on project management and interpreting results
helping people who have taken genetic DNA tests to make sense of their test results and what they might mean for their genealogical research

Further details and a working agenda will be posted in due course. In the meantime, please contact genDNAscotland@gmail.com for further information or to register an interest in attending, or enter your name and email address in the comment form below and send in your question.

Y-DNA RESULTS CHART:
Includes Haplogroups: R1b1a2a1a1b4
124448 Alexander McFarlane 1764---8 Nov 1852 Dunbartonshire Scotland

"Dark Ages DF63 kinsmen to the earls of Lennox
and thus to the Macfarlane chiefs and their cadets:
208171 William Allan, b. ?, m. 1760 Kilconquhar Fife Scotland
R1b1a2a1a1b4
History:
...."Many of the rank and file of the clan took other names designating their vocation,
such as Stalker and Miller, while others adopted names from motives of prudence
when the clan came into conflict with the authorities.
As a result clan Macfarlane has many associated Sept surnames
and some bearing these names were originally Macfarlanes.
From the ancestral lands of Arrochar the Macfarlanes spread throughout the
Highlands and to Northern Ireland. Today Macfarlanes are found around the world. "

ALASDAIR MACDONALD has commented on
ELDER and McDONALD on SKYE, posted on my webpages
at
http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~nancyelder/ed/Skye.htm

Book: "BRAVE SONS OF SKYE" Page 219
Major-General SIR GEORGE ELDER , K.C.B.
[Knight Commander of the Order of the Bath]
."...The Elders had fighting blood in their veins from both sides of the
house, ancestors of theirs (Stuart and Elder) having fought at
Culloden on the side of the Prince."

From Sleat Local History Society:
http://www.sleatlocalhistorysociety.org.uk/index.php/topic/48
Emigration Article refers to Alexander Macdonald Elder and his father, John Elder.
"MacDonald and Elder, the company that ran the stores in Isle Ornsay in the early 1800s, also acted as emigration agents."

SKYE ELDER kit (#172862) - Descendant of COLIN ELDER, has different Y-DNA markers than "MAINE" list, but always interesting to ELDER project.

See an article:

http://www.cnn.com/2010/WORLD/europe/02/01/ww1.graves/index.html

--" the British and Australian ministries of defense were trying to get DNA samples
from relatives of those killed in hopes of identifying the bodies.

..."The commission will list as much information as possible on the
Fromelles headstones -- a name or a nationality if it can be determined, they said."
