13th: Updated pedigrees

The Patriarchs page now includes a few more twigs in the family of John & Elizabeth (YULE) FAIRBAIRN in the hope of attracting a participant or two to represent these lines.
This activity being prompted by the receipt of a copy of a three page pedigree from the FAIRBAIRN file of the Wellington County of Ontario archives. Undated, and unsourced in the copy I was given (but subsequently identified as submitted by Nora CARLAW nee MARSTON, a now-deceased descendant of Clarissa Harlow FAIRBAIRN's), I can spot at least 7 families incorporated into this one tree.
Whereas the project is indeed showing us that many of the Scottish Borders families are indeed related, it doesn't tell us how, and many of the links shown in this document are suspect, so I felt it should be added to the Patriarchs page, linked to some hopefully useful comments on alternate data.
Treat anyone in the Supplementary pages with an "!" after their name with caution, the information presented for such people needs verification.
The tree as provided from that file begins with John 1563.

Only a fortnight left to go for kits to be ordered, and paid for, to get the discount. Be in - follow any of the Join Project or Order links on the project pages.
