1 : the science of genealogy by genetics;
especially : utilizing molecular biology to trace a lineage beyond the limits of historical records.
Have you hit a brick wall tracing your family?
DNA testing could help you prove your family heritage.
This Lamont DNA study group at Family Tree DNA is open to anybody
from the Lamont family and related Septs.
Our main goal will to connect our families back to Sir Laumon.
Like all of you we want to find out more about our family, how we
connect and the Lamont historical background. DNA provides us an
exciting method to extend our genealogy pursuits.
DNA will assist our search in the following ways.
- Eliminate or confirm the relationship of individuals or lines
- Focus research towards related families
- Direct research into a compact geographical area and timeframe
- Establish country or region of origin
- Confirm variant surnames & septs as part of the same Lamont family
- Strengthen weak paper trails
- Avoid pursuing false connections
Our study and other DNA surname studies are based on Y-chromosome DNA,
which is possessed only by males. It is passed from fathers to sons virtually unchanged over hundreds of years.
Therefore, direct participants in DNA surname studies necessarily must be males.
Direct participants in our particular study, that is, people who are actually tested,
must be males either:
(1) carrying the Lamont surname or
(2) descended directly in an unbroken male-to-male line from a Lamont-surnamed male.
So ladies, if you have a Lamont brother, father, cousin, nephew,
or uncle who has at least a slight interest in genealogy,
maybe you can help enlist them in our research.
In fact, we already have a lady who has become associated with our project
by enlisting a Lamont-surnamed male relative.
As of Jan 1, 2007 we have 17 members tested.

|History of Isobel's Song (Her Long Black Hair)
This song was written to the memory of a brave Lamond girl who in June of 1646,
walked past her enemy with a "parchment of safe passage"that had been given to her Clan Chief,
[her brother) concealed in her long hair. Her friends and family were murdered before her eyes.
She was left on the beach to starve along with here sister-in-law and nephews.
For thirteen years she sought justice. This parchment and her testimony,
along with other Highland Clans, and the Clan Campbell themselves, brought about
the trial of the Clan Campbell Chief and the eventual death of the Marquee of Argyll.
