A preliminary analysis of the FAIRBAIRN, and variants, birth registrations in Wales are now included on the One Name Study analysis pages, 1837 to 1915 only at this stage.
Not a lot in that time period, and an interesting exercise in discrepancies between Ancestry's FreeBMD index and FindMyPast's index for the period.
FreeBMD wins hands down, although most of FindMyPast's errors were mistranscriptions of FAIRBANK as FAIRBANE, the former not being included in this one name study, whilst the latter is, plus two 1915 registrations that simply could not be found on FindMyPast.
Corrections have been lodged where necessary.
Presentation of results may well change as experimentation continues on the best way to show the analyses.
