Maclure dna Glenelg
« on: Saturday 14 January 17 11:26 GMT (UK) »
MACLURE dna
I would be willing to pay the costs for a male Maclure to have their dna tested who is descended from someone in the Glenelg area . I could not accept Skye as it is thought Maclures from there are not related to those on the mainland. If someone matches me then that in itself could prove we are not related to Skye.
It is believed my ancestor left with Alexander Macleod in 1793 on "the Argyll"
I could only afford one test.

You might be better off with autosomal DNA testing on yourself, or if possible, a relative from this line from a previous generation.

This could pick up clues as far back as 7G grandparents, though not reliably that far back. 4th to 6th cousins, i.e. sharing 3rd to 5th great grandparents, are considered good matches at Ancestry.

I was able to match one Mclure who has a paper trail back to Glenelg.
I am still looking for another to confirm our findings.
I would also like to find someone from Ontario, Canada as it is believed quite a few went there.
Thanks,
Rod
