Connecting the MacDonalds of Tulloch to Wikitree

+4 votes
I've noticed there doesn't seem to be any project for the MacDonalds of Tulloch, the descendants of Angus MacDonald, second son of (MacDonald-1918) John "Iain Dubh" MacDonald, 1st of Bohuntine. I'm trying to connect my ancestor, (MacDonald-4101) Captain Angus MacDonald (VII of Tulloch?) to the tree, but it looks like I would have to create 6 or 7 new pages to do that and I just want to be careful about the whole thing. It's also not perfectly clear to me that the Captain Angus "Tulloch" MacDonald mentioned in pages 587-588 in "Mabou Pioneers, Volume I" is the same Angus MacDonald, VII of Tulloch mentioned in page 430 of "The Clan Donald." Perhaps somebody with more Scottish Clan experience can weigh in, here?

I've been doing some research on the Macdonald's from Bohuntine and MacGlassrich alias Campbell from Tulloch located 3 miles from Bohuntine.  I'm familiar with the Mabou Pioneers Vol 1  If I run across this Capt Angus MacDonald I will forward.   The MacDonald's I've been tracking ended up in South West Mabou  ( Ridge MacDonald )  I would appreciate any info you could share on the family's above.  Thanks 

There is a chart of the DNA VERIFIED lineages of the R1a Clan Donald at

(to see larger type, stretch your browser window horizontally, don't try using larger type.) The Tulloch line is at far left.

The corresponding DNA results are on the top chart at

The lines themselves are DNA verified exceedingly well (this is the longest and oldest truly DNA verified tree in the world). The genealogical lines are combinations of standard Clan Donald records, personal records of the test participants, and some few primary records. You can be 100.000% sure that living people on these charts are descendants of certain older people ... but we cannot absolutely guarantee the correctness of the name and dates and location of each and every generation. We'd truly love your help in getting that done to Wikitree "badgeable" standards.

Persons claiming close connections to this tree can, usually (exception, some Clanranald/Glengarry men) verify those connections with very cheap ($20 per test) tests at a company called You need not pay well over $100 for a Y-STR test at

I am the DNA admin at the Clan Donald. I exceedingly strongly suggest you contact me personally at for test suggestions. If you have lines that connect to those on one of those charts, please contact me even if you do not wish to pay for a test. The Clan Donald might (or might not) want to pay for a test.




I see you are researching Krppoch Bohuntin MacDonalds and I am decended from the Ridge Line. I visited there (Bohuntin) 3 weeks ago. How can I help?

I started to connect your Angus to John Dubh. Had to stop for the hockey game but will get back to it tomorrow evening. Yes, I believe MP I is correct and Angus Tulloch is the same one as in the Clan Donald.

I knew some of the West Lake Ainsley MacDonalds descended from Angus son Angus. Is that your line?

Thank you! I am only descended from Captain Angus MacDonald through his daughter, Mary. The other MacDonald line that I'm descended from is the "Post" MacDonalds of Mount Young.
That means you have a huge number of Beatons in your tree!
So many Beatons. Alexander Beaton "of Skye" shows up in many of my lines...
