SET results to 1000. There are not that many results, however, well
over 750 and growing all the time.
The results of this project are similar to those of other large projects --
Currently M222 results project wide somewhere around 100 or slightly
under 1/7th of the published results.
Up until DNA this clan like all others considered Surnames as chosen,
acquired, or changed as the classification for belonging. Only the
leadership was blood related, or attempted to be.
If you read the candid summary of history previously posted one sees
that they honestly state the histories are a bit murky (as most scribed
oral histories are); however, the Clan does attempt to eek out the
probable(s) and has embraced DNA to assist in the process.
Will we ever really know the entire truth? Probably not. Theories are
suggested, suggestions made which generally are revised over time as new
discoveries and/or theories are launced.
