Subject: [CLAN-MACLAREN] J MacLaren Family
Date: Sun, 12 Jul 2009 21:31:14 -0400

As I said in my prior email, earlier genealogists for the Clan MacLaren
Society of North America collected many MacLaren genealogies. To
distinguish between the various familes, they gave each a letter that
designated that family. One of these is the J MacLaren Family.

The progenitor of the J MacLaren we believe to be John McLearen b.
Scotland bef 1739, d. Cumberland Co., NC. He had sons: Archibald McLearen,
b. Scotland, d. bef 1751 Cumberland Co., NC; Daniel McLerran, lived
Cumberland Co., NC; and Duncan McLearan, d. 1757, Cumberland Co., NC
We now have preliminary evidence (from DNA testing) that this family and
the K MacLaren Family are linked. If we can establish this, we can expand
our genealogies of the J and K MacLaren Families. However, in order to
firmly establish this, I need to have more members of the J MacLaren Family
do a DNA test. Since the test is done on the Y-chromosome (the male sex
chromosome), the person testing has to be a male. Furthermore, he has to
bear some variant of McLaurin. The descendants of this family spelled the
surname many ways (McClerren, McLeran, McLaren, etc.)

Right now is a good time to do the test. Family Tree DNA, the company we
use, is running a special during the month of July. The special includes a
very good price on the 67-marker test (the one I recommend). I will be glad
to answer any questions you may have on this. If you want to go ahead and
order the test, here is the link:

Here are some members of this family that I would like to contact and have
some do the DNA test (names and data from the files of the Clan MacLaren
Societry of North America).
