Scottish DNA -- Clans, families, and surnames
Although located on the edge of Europe the population of Scotland has been enriched for millennia by the arrival of successive waves of immigrants. Alasdair's talk will focus on DNA testing for genealogical purposes including the origins and inter-relationships between various clans and families.
