Location: Outer Hebrides Scottland, Nova Scotia
Surnames/tags: MacLeod MacLean MacLellan
The goal of this project is to assist others, whose common ancestors originated from the region near Pabbay in the Outer Hebrides Islands of Scotland. Last names include MacLeod,/McLeod, MacLellan/McLellan, MacLean/McLean, MacDonald/McDonald, MacIver/McIver.
The descendants of these ancestors may reside in Scotland or have immigrated to Nova Scotia and Australia. With the advent of DNA testing, finding connections is much easier. The last names of many individuals from this region are not particularly common, so building your own family tree connection to them should be easier given the open source, collaborative, shared organization of wikitree. Before adding information regarding living individuals to a wikitree profile or family tree, please review the documentation under Help:Privacy_Policy.
Here are some resources and profiles that may be useful.

Wonder if you are related to this group? If you have an Ancestry DNA test, select several unrelated profiles below (do not pick anyone you are closely related to). If you are related to any one of them, with "shared DNA" greater than 10cM, then click on their initials. Next click on"SharedMatches" (It's on the menu next to "Trees" and "Ethnicity"). Many of the people listed below should also be shared matches with matches greater than 15-20cM. No luck? You can find your matches under "DNA" in the main menu by clicking "DNA", then "DNA matches".
