The MacLellan Trees Project has our very own genealogy system database with input from member who have personally assembled there family tree and submitted for cross referencing with other member in conjunction with the DNA Project.
The project has been established to study the genealogical DNA lineages of Clan MacLellan and those that have a surname etymology related to Mac-a-ghilledhiolan ( i.e. The Son of the Bastard - MacLolane ) or Giolla Fhaoláin ( i.e. Servant of St. Fillan ).
About The MacLellan Ancestry Project
The MacLellan Ancestry Project began in 2014 with a DNA test at Family Tree DNA and the results told a story that would unfolded over the next 8 years it would unveiled a rich history of knights, castles, wars, betrayal, murder and the rise of Lord Kirkcudbright and the slow down fall of this noble family of Galloway. Through members genealogies and DNA participants we have discovered 5 distinct Haplogroups in 380 participating individuals.
We need more Big-Y volunteers.
Welcome to Clan MacLellan. Our objective is to provide a focal point for all members of Clan MacLellan, and to promote kinship between MacLellan’s. We encourage the study and research into traditions, our Scottish heritage, and our MacLellan history. We are a society composed of MacLellan’s of various spellings and variations. These include a wide variety as you can see on our spellings page. If you are descended from, or are married to a MacLellan of any spelling, then you are one of us. We are all cousins, and we are pleased you are here. Our name has evolved from the Gaelic. The spelling form "MacLellan" was chosen as our clan name because the castle at Kirkcudbright has this spelling. Scottish history also uses this spelling most often in referring to the Lords Kirkcudbright and other knights bearing the name in Galloway, particularly the Stewartry of Kirkcudbright.
Our Clan Motto is "Think On".
