FAIRBAIRN DNA Project Status Update
Posted by: Lorna Henderson (ID *****4370) Date: July 04, 2009 at 16:24:26
  of 540

Anyone interested in how the assorted FAIRBAIRN families may be connected should check out the ongoing FAIRBAIRN Surname DNA Project.
Summary pedigree and result information is available at
http://www.worldfamilies.net/surnames/fairbairn/
More detailed information on the people involved, with theoretical dna signatures on how they MIGHT connect, is available at
http://dnasurnames.info/lineages/spFAIRBAIRNLineages.htm

We now have results from 16 participants, with a further 4 are somewhere in the pipeline.
12 of these are 1 showing that the Borders FAIRBAIRNs are related, somehow.

If you are a male FAIRBAIRN interested in your family history you would be most welcome to join the project to represent your line, or provide corroboration on lines represented by only one participant to date, and help us complete the jigsaw.

Known families we are particularly interested in finding (additional) representatives for are included on the Wanted! pages
http://dnasurnames.info/lineages/spwantedfairbairns.htm
(Bear in mind that the charts included are very abbreviated, only including those lines likely, or thought to be able, to produce an eligible participant.)

Check out the project diary
http://fairbairndna.blogspot.com/
for breaking news.
And if you have a favourite FAIRBAIRN web page to be linked to, contact me (scripted email available by clicking on my name above this posting)
