24th: Pedigrees posted & yet another name variation

Check out the Summary McADIE Surname DNA Pages for a couple more pedigrees, all from Watten, Caithness.

This activity mainly being prodded along by a distant match (GD 5 at 67 markers, for a different surname) to our sole project representative, not that we can match the respective family trees.

The links in the pedigrees mainly open up the related Supplementary pages for the people concerned.

I was interested to read in a MacADIE will (that of Ralph Anstruther MacADIE, who did early research on the Watten line of John McADIE and Elsepth SUTHERLAND or DONALDSON, and drew a wonderful tree with all it's twigs and leaves), that he considered the family name to be Machardie, and indeed, one of the people declaring that said will was in Ralph's handwriting was one David McHARDY, ironmonger of Aberdeen (1898).

Happy to post any other McADIE etc pedigrees, even happier to welcome new representatives to the project.

1st: More results in

A couple more panels of results now in for Noel (M-1), and the overall result grid updated.

Any more McADIEs out there interested to see how they match, just follow the Join links, we'd love to hear from you.

22nd: 25 marker results - Lineage 1

Another panel of results have been received for our Lineage 1, and the supplementary pages updated.
Although difficult to compare between EthnoAncestry and FamilyTree DNA results (different markers used), no new differences have popped out between Lineage 1 and 2, just matches.

Preliminary results received

Our first official Family Tree DNA results have been received (1st 12 markers only so far), and updated to our supplementary pages at the DNASurnames.

Interested to see that the 12/12 marker matches have a fair smattering of Scandinavian surnames (our McADIE interest is from Caithness, north of Scotland), and that there isn't a very good match (9/12) with the only other McADIE dna results available to us (although this latter is at least in the same haplogroup).

4th: 1st kit has hit the lab

Now we wait.

The Patriarch for this line, George, has had his web page tweaked slightly, and an updated lineage chart loaded to show where our first official participant "fits".

Anyone with McAdie/MacAdie family trees able to be linked too is welcome to send the details for inclusion on the web pages lists, and any researchers wanting to be added to the researcher list likewise.

13th: Dunbeath

Added a link to the Dunbeath Heritage Centre in the WebPages section.
(and yes, I know that the link to Ralph isn't working).

10th: General web updates

Check out the revised McADIE Overview Page, and the Lineages Page.
Both have been updated to include some links, related web pages, and stubs for where more information will gradually be added over time, eg Wanted! lines.

I only had a very quick web search for some published M(a)cADIE trees, so if you know of any others already documented online somewhere, send an email to the Compiler address in the footer of the Lineages Pages.

7th: Check it out

Well we seem to be up and running, with all pages at least now accessible. Should you find any missing links, please let me know.

Check out the "Front Door" for the McADIE Surname DNA Project. There's not much behind it as yet, but given time and interest from other McADIE researchers and hopefully a participant or two, it will grow.

If you wish to be listed as a M(a)cADIE, or other variant, researcher, again, send an email (contact details on the footer of the web pages under Compiler) and you can be added to the Researcher index. Email addresses are encrypted.

Pedigrees, biased towards male lines for dna participants, are also welcome. Outline pedigrees will be posted on the Project Summary Patriarchs pages held on the World Families Network site, (rather bereft as yet, haven't had too much time to tweak the standard pages).
Those with participants and linkages to others also included in the McADIE DNA Projects Portal pages behind the Front Door above.

6th: Welcome

Welcome to the Project Diary for the newly created McADIE Surname DNA Project.

Summary information (dna result grid, and outline pedigrees) will be available on the WorldFamilies Network pages.

Supplementary information, including links to assorted McADIE (and variants) surname related pages will be available on the DNA Projects Portal.

All McADIE (and variant) surnamed males are most welcome to join in the fun of seeing where dna can take our genealogy.
