>"The Clan MacLaren Surname DNA Project just got a big boost. The
Clan MacLaren Society in Scotland just had their Annual General
Meeting. At that meeting, they discussed my project and whether
they should support it. They decided yes!! They will pay 1/2 the
cost for three of their members to test. And one of the three has
a paper trail back to Balquhidder, our ancestral home in Scotland!!
With the additional of these three, I will have 20 participants --
3 from Scotland, one from New Zealand, one from Canada, and 15 from
the United States."
