Rose Clan Information and Genealogy
,George Rose, I will reply to all Email.
The Rose Clan is unique among Scottish Clans. Since its formation
the Chief of the Clan has always been passed down in succession from father
to son. Mirroring the succession rights of royal families. And the name
of the first born is normally Hugh Rose. Only twice in its history, as
at present, there was no male heir and was passed down to the oldest daughter
who has always been named Elizabeth.
Rose Clan was formed in early 13th century at Nairn in Kilravock
County Scotland and the
Clan Castle built in 1460,
Kilravock Castle , still stands today on the banks of the Nairn River. You can
stay there as it operates a Bed and Breakfast facility.

Present Chief of the Clan.
Everyone with the Scottish surname Rose who can trace
their genealogy roots to one of the Clan Chiefs or one of their children,
are related. Once a genealogy link is made to a Clan Chiefs family, you
can trace your genealogy back to the early 13th century through two old
documents that have been preserved by my family.
If you want check out my Rose Genealogy.
They are Notes (text file 8k). The
other is titled Rose, The Highland Roses (text file 5k).
- If you believe that there is a possibility of a
connection to my genealogy, Please
some of your surname information and I will exchange information
with you or pass along to someone who is better prepared to respond to you surnames.
I was asked to take part in DNA testing by a group of Rose's who are
trying to sort out there family roots. The results are in, I am a genuine
Rose of Scottish descendent.
Recently, Nora Probasco has volunteered to join the Rose DNA Project. Nora is a
seasoned administrator of several DNA projects, andan expert in the various testing offered at FTDNA.
She was one of the early pioneers,along with our David Brown, and has many years of experience.
In fact, she and David were very close friends for many years and discussed the Rose DNA Projectfrom the beginning,
so she understands Davidís long-term vision for theproject. It will be wonderful having a seasoned Administrator
and Davidís bestfriend to help with the project!! We are so very lucky to have someone with her experience on board,
and I hope you make Nora feel very welcome.
And the Best News of all!!! We are very excited to share with you that the Rose DNAProject has a new website with
all Y-DNA test results online. In the past your test results were included bi-annually in the Rose Family Association Bulletin.
Many members have expressed dissatisfaction with this arrangement. Nora and Ihave been dissatisfied with this arrangement and it
ran counter to Family TreeDNAís emphasis on transparency and viewability of the results for the benefit of all. We feel that all
members of this project should have open access toup-to-date results, and the related ancestral information without the cost of amembership.
As always maintaining the privacy of our members is our utmost concern, so as in the past your names will not be shown along with your test results.
While it is still under construction, the new Rose DNA Project website can be found at:
We encourage all male Rose's to be apart of this DNA testing.
You can now view your Y-DNA results online at this site by doing the following:
We will be looking at ways to grow and improve the project so we can find more potential matches for you,
and value your input and feedback. Please feel free to contact us with any questions.
- 1. Go to the above website.
- 2. On the tool bar at the top of the page, click on Y-DNA Results.
