The McDonald Project was created to connect the descendants of Somerled, particularly those with surnames of McDonald, MacDonald, and Macdonald. Of course, if you can confirm your lineage, we welcome you.
The goal of the project is to develop a functional database of the Somerled line, to allow realtime data compilation and manipulation. This will allow us to perform interesting and practical genetic, physiological, and phenotypical comparisons across sections and subsets of surname groups.
Beyond the scientific purpose of this database, joining will also allow you to connect with distant relatives and family… some of whom you likely never knew existed.
