site for DNA MaHaffey and Niall

visit click DNA results, scroll down to MaHaffey I noticed on Tues 28 March 2006 that MaHaffey is almost a perfect DNA match with Niall of the Nine Hostages (5th century n.w. Ireland) Niall's DNA is shown a couple of lines above MaHaffey My research on McHaffies etc goes back some years, and it is found mainly in Wigtownshire, Ayrshire, and Kirkcudbright, Scotland, and in the same area there have been Mahaffie/Mahaffeys living for centuries. McHaffie was formerly McIlhaffie, and 1500s, McKilhaffee/ey, McKilhaffy. The lands of Kellechaffee were granted by King Robert the Bruce/Robert I to John son of Neil of Carrick, and are in Wigtownshire just north of Stranraer. The Neilson family owned these lands for centuries. Neil of Carrick was father of Marjorie, mother of King Robert I.
