Hi. Taking the opportunity to jump into this discussion. I too am
researching Campbells in Canada, Ontario, Elgin County to be precise. There
are two DNA tests from my family in the Campbell DNA name group. The family
I am researching is Alexander and Nancy (Annie) Campbell who were both born
in Scotland. I don't have any information prior to this (c1797 - 1884).
If interested in sharing info email at sue.campbell(a)rogers.com.

Subject: Re: [Campbell] Anyone researching Campbell's in Canada?
The combination of the MacGregor and Campbell names is interested from a
historical perspective in view of the 200 year ban on the use of the
MacGregor name beginning in the 1600s.
Due to the ban some MacGregors assumed the name of Campbell. Some MacGregors
took on other surnames hoping to get into the Campbell's good graces.
Have any of the male Campbells had their DNA tested? If I would be
interested in the results.
