While the research is still on going, the DNA results of the mid Argyll Mac Ailpín family suggests they may be the historical Mac Ailpín family and their paternal line provided other clan progenitors in mid Argyll. The ancestral origins results for the family shows connections to central Scotland and no deep connections to Ireland, which points to an indigenous Cumbric or Pict progenitor of this family. News and research updates of the mid Argyll Mac Ailpín families will be posted on the Mid Argyll Group’s blog page.
