16th: Reby DODDS' William F tree added

Patriarchs page now includes an outline pedigree for the earliest part of the William (m. Jean WANLESS) tree as documented by Reby DODDS in her "Who's Which" (1970), and comparative pedigrees for some of the people referenced.

14th: Upgrades ordered for 1st 3 kits

Upgrades from 37 to 67 markers in progress for all 3 participants to try and sort out where William fits into the chain and how closely all 3 will match at the higher number of markers.

8th: Patriarchs page updated

Patriarchs page revamped to split William (m. Jean WANLESS) out into his own pedigree separate from the John FAIRBAIRN/Helen ANDERSON one, for now. Perhaps a participant from that line may enable us to shift him back in again and unite all the trees?

7th:3 kits out of 3 matching at 37 markers

Full 37 marker results in for the 3rd kit, a descendant of William & Jean (WANLESS) FAIRBAIRN, with a full 37/37 match with one participant, the descendant of Charles and Mary (BATE) FAIRBAIRN, and 36/37 match with the other, the descendant of Archibald and Janet (SCOTT) FAIRBAIRN. As the researcher of this line believed they traced back to Andrew FAIRBAIRN (married Margaret HENDERSON), the line of Sir William FAIRBAIRN (married Dorothy MARR), we are therefore very interested in hearing from anyone down these lines of who would like to join the project to help verify this or further determine the exact relationships. Patriarch charts will be updated shortly to reflect this exciting breakthrough.

6th: Preliminary 12 marker results in for 3rd kit

Preliminary (12 marker) results in for the third kit, that of a descendant of William and Jean (WANLESS) FAIRBAIRN, and determined to be a full 12/12 match with both previous kits.
As there was no known relationship between the two, this is rather exciting.
