Mar 16, 2008: FAIRBAIRN patriarchs, more HENDERSONs

Began wading thru some FAIRBAIRN wills to try and sort out some inconsistencies in some of the published trees.
As a result, I've updated the Patriarch's page on the FAIRBAIRN Surname DNA project to show some of the alternatives that may exist to previously published data.
Caution is recommended, check both my and other's data and reach your own conclusions.
Participants for the project on other lines particularly welcome. I can't quite believe that all three people currently tested all match, there have to be other lines out there somewhere!

The James LAPPIN/Marion HENDERSON branch found below (12th) has proved rather prolific. Robert has provided me with a heap of 1918 to 1940 birth extracts for the family in Lanarkshire, firstly Newlands, Uddingston, then Tannochside, then Bellshill, then Bridgeton, Glasgow. If this rings any bells for you, I'd love to hear from you. Marion is the dtr of William HENDERSON & Marion AITKEN, and these LAPPIN children are my 3rd cousins, from the Archibald branch of the family of James HENDERSON & Amelia MILLAR that remained in the UK when all the rest of the family emigrated to NZ.
