Clan Donald DNA Project – Haplogroup R1b – Black subgroup

A place for comment and exploration for the Black sub-group of the Clan Donald DNA Project


This site hopes to provide information on the genetic origins of the R1b1 Black sub-group.

The  genetic signature of the group is rather unusual and distinct and thus far confined to various islands of the west coast of Scotland and the counties of Caithness and Sutherland on mainland Scotland.

To compliment the genetic genealogy the site also aims to provide historical and geographical information.
