New recruit ; Wanted! page updated ++

Pity it was after the discount period ended, but never mind, the project now has a representative for the family of John A FAIRBAIRN Snr of Stillwater, the lynch pin family for the 3 cousinships claimed: to Angus, a descendant of David & Jane (WILLIAMSON) FAIRBAIRN, and to Albert, the Sunderland emigrant to Hoquiam, a descendant of Robert and Elizabeth (TAYLOR) FAIRBAIRN, represented in the project by Joe (F-10).

Thank you William (F-12), look forward to seeing how this match pans out, as you should be a match to Roy (F-3) if all our detective work is accurate.
It would still be great to have a proven descendant from David and Jane (WILLIAMSON) FAIRBAIRN to represent their lineage though as the identification of John A as David and Jane's son does rather go against two of his official certificates.

Check out the updated pages linked above for more information on some of the assumptions involved in the identifications.

Finished working on a version of the Patriarchs report for John and Helen (ANDERSON) FAIRBAIRN.
Also included this as a descendancy chart on the supplementary site where some additional notes may be found.
A link to this is now included on the FAIRBAIRN Wanted! page.
The chart is NOT a full descendancy report for John and Helen as it is only trying to identify those lines where the project may find a representative for the line.
So many FAIRBAIRN families claim "oh we're related to Sir William", without verifying this claim that it would be wonderful to have a proven dna signature for the John and Helen lineage, ie at least two distant cousins from the line.
Any takers? Anyone in touch with any of the family?
