(6 of 12) tested
Results (except Colla Uais and Somerled) are from Family Tree DNA testing with McBride results at McBride DNA Project at WorldFamilies.net.
Colla Uais and Somerled are from Founder Scots DNA at OurFamilyOrigins.com/scotland/founderscots.htm
 Genetic Distance from (12 & 25 marker test) results for us. The sum of differences in allele values. See Understanding Genetic Distance.
 We are also of Haplogroup R1b1. Anthropologists break down the Y-chromosome into branches called Haplogroups or clades, which distinguish major branches of Homo Sapiens.
Haplogroup R1b1 is the most common haplogroup in European populations. It is believed to have expanded throughout Europe as humans re-colonized after the last glacial maximum 10-12 thousand years ago.
The majority of McBrides are Haplogroup I. According to current theories, Haplogroup I first arrived in Europe around 20,000-25,000 years ago from the Middle East.
 Colla Uais was king of the Scots before they moved from Ireland to Scotland around 500 AD. His genealogy is shown at Colla - MacDonald.
Director of the Clan Donald USA Genetic Project, Mark MacDonald, has identified this signature based on data from existing genetic projects including the MacGregors, gaelic Livingstones, and Campbells. See: Important Dalriadic Ancestral Genetic Signature Identified
 Somerled defeat of the Norse King of Man in 1156 gained independence for southwestern Scotland. His grandson Donald, third Lord of the Isles, was the start of Clan MacDonald. See Scottish DNA testing.

There was a discussion of Haplogroup I in 2003 a Discussion group at GENEALOGY-DNA-L Archives, Malcolm Dodd states:
"Persons with an "I" haplogroup are most likely Saami, Croatian,German or Polish and NOT of Viking ancestry. Someone from the British Isles with "I" haplogroup is just as likely to be Anglo-Saxon as Viking."
Bill at Lowe DNA disputes this.
for a report by the Y-Chromosome Consortium (YCC).
Allelle - The number of repeats of a sequence in a marker. DYS - DNA Y-chromosome Segment - markers are assigned DYS numbers. Haplo - Haplogroup Identifies the person's major population group and provides information about the ancient origin. R1b1 is the most common haplogroup in European populations. Marker - Repeated base-pair sequences (2-5 base-pairs) at specific locations along the Y chromosome.
McBride DNA project at WorldFamilies.net links together results from testing at Family Tree DNA
The DNA Genealogy Service at Scottish forensics centre based at Glasgow Caledonian University, will be unique by teaming traditional family history search services with modern DNA genetic profiling technology, to help people from around the world trace their Scottish roots.
