Hi Tom,
>>P.S. According to recent DNA Testing, The Armsrongs are not related to the Fairbairns. This is according to Lorna Henderson. Someday we will have our own clan, without being part of the Armstrong clan.

For those interested in this part of Tom's message, check out the DNA project at
http://dnasurnames.info/lineages/dnafairbairnresults.htm
and the Armstrong dna project
http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~donegalstrongs/armstrong.htm
The vast majority of the Borders FAIRBAIRN families represented to date are haplogroup I1, whereas the ARMSTRONGs are mostly R1.

Could be of course that there are lineages as yet not tested - so, do join in the fun!!

Regards
Lorna
