Welcome to the Lineage section of the Fairbairn one Name Study (ONS).
The ONS and it's companion site, the DNA project, are on two separate sites:
- Lineage information, ie the family trees
- DNA information, ie the genetic genealogy supporting the family trees, or providing more questions to be answered.
with a third being hosted for posterity by the Guild of One Name Studies, to which the previous analysis section here is being shifted, and expanded (Fairbairn surname occurrences by time/date etc).
Some sidebar links will take you to this latter.
The differences between them?
These ONS pages consist of assorted lineage charts (which can be expanded/contracted to aid viewing of selected lines), with fuller information on key people primarily selected as being of interest because of, eg:
- conjecture as to how they connect to others
- disambiguation notes
- representatives wanted for the DNA project
The DNA pages expand on the summary DNA information available from the FamilyTreeDNA Fairbairn Surname DNA project with DNA signature charts, chromosome maps for autosomal DNA etc.
The newer set of Guild pages, still very much under development (Sep 2017), hold assorted articles and analyses of Fairbairn data and a growing collection of assorted Fairbairn lines, usually only the basic BDM/Census type information etc where registered users may also contribute their pedigrees or lineages for posterity - after all, you may not all agree with my analyses and conclusions
Hopefully the menus provide seamless naviagation between them all.
The lineage information included here is my own research and/or interpretation of information supplied, so mistakes are mine and mine alone.
Happy to include links to pedigrees, and to list researchers, on the appropriate site.
We're all in this journey together, and so many people have already helped me over the years it seems only fair to return those favours.
So, if you want to help on this journey, do contact me via the link in the page footers.
