MacGregor DNA Project

Professor Richard McGregor heads up this project and also, with Professor Neil McGregor in Australia and Keith MacGregor in Connecticut, analyzes all the data. He has been Chairman of the Clan Gregor Society SCIO of Scotland (CGS) since 1995. In 2002 he initiated the MacGregor DNA Project which now has over 1,900 members (August 2021). Every year he publishes a blog in which he discusses what the results suggest and indicates where different individuals share close family relationships which allows people to share genealogies. Analysis now concentrates on trying to group families together according to the traditional groups (or ‘houses’ –  such as the MacGregors of Roro). Over many years he has built up a large genealogical database covering the whole of Scotland and frequently helps MacGregor kin all over the world identify their family roots. Check out his blogs:

Richard is a musician by profession and since retiring from full time teaching now lectures part-time at the Royal Conservatoire of Music in Glasgow.
