Clan Matheson is one of forty-eight Highland clans using genetic testing to establish their genealogical roots.  The aim is to prove or disprove some of the traditions about clan genealogy.

Like the projects looking at some other Highland clans, the Matheson project is finding traces of both Celtic and Norse origins among the people taking part, and is also revealing other very interesting facts about the clan.  DNA testing makes it possible for individuals to find out what family group they belong to, even without a detailed genealogy.
