If I have a 'clan mother', does that mean I need to buy a kilt ?  ;D

Andy, the information you've given is really interesting and certainly gives food for thought, and thank you for taking the trouble to post it all.
Ladies and Gentlemen, the comments you have posted both before and since are equally interesting and I'm bookmarking this thread so I can come back to it again and again and try and get my head round it all!
Whether one agrees or not, I think thanks are due to Andy for such a detailed explanation of his assertion in the earlier thread

I'd like to echo Maggie's thoughts.  It has been most interesting reading this thread.  Thanks to all involved.

My own genealogy has shown me how common related people procreating was.  I have found evidence of it on both maternal and paternal sides and from early times until quite recently.  Most recently my maternal great grandparents were second cousins, (and one of them was the the result of first cousins marrying) and much further back I've found entanglement through Scottish lines, (that go back, waaaay back if I choose to believe the online trees  ::) )
