See Wanted! charts for John and Helen (ROSS) FAIRBAIRN needed to test for a possible match
Charts only show those I have researched, only descendants still with the surname FAIRBAIRN, and their spouses, and usually only deceased FAIRBAIRN family members. Exceptions include direct lines down to researchers included elsewhere on the site, or for DNA project participants who have agreed to be shown in the latter project. Should you wish to be included in your relevant chart, please contact the webmistress, using the link in the page footer.
So, in general, charts are by no means complete. Please refer further queries to the researcher(s) listed for the line.
Where there is doubt, conflicting evidence for relationships, or additional published information exists, this is usually discussed on the appropriate person's page, follow the link and make up your mind from the information and sources shown.
