Richard McGregor - Identity and Ancestry

From Sunday Morning, 10:07 am on 29 August 2010

Dr Richard McGregor is chairman of the Clan Gregor Society of Scotland. During a visit to New Zealand this week, he spoke with Chris Laidlaw about the long and fraught history of the McGregor family. The clan was proscribed in 1612, which meant it was officially condemned as an enemy of the state and anyone with the name McGregor could be killed and their lands confiscated. Dr McGregor also discusses the clan's DNA project.
