30th: FAIRBAIRNs mainly

DNA Projects Portal Site updated.

Main changes were in the FAIRBAIRNs, see that project's diary for the details.

Preliminary links to an existing DAVIDSON dna project have been included, along with an outline lineage for a family I'd like a representative of.

22nd: RICHARDSON updates

Updated the RICHARDSON info to show we now have a representative for William's line, down from John RICHARDSON and Elizabeth SHIEL.
Changed the All names index on the Lineages section to a better format, now called Surname Index.

12th: Lineage updates

New results for the SINTONs and a new participant in the FAIRBAIRN project, see their respective project diaries.

For the HENDERSONs represented in the lineages section, a results table has been incorporated into this site (rather than with the overall project) as the overall project(s) (Clan HENDERSON and Gunn Sept) are rather large and there is no match, so of little interest to this particular lineage.

Also included a particular RICHARDSON lineage of interest to me - participants wanted.

13th: RICHARDSONs and all name index added

Added a link on the Portal to an existing Richardson project, and incorporated a chart for "my" RICHARDSONs into the Lineages section in the hope of attracting a participant or two to represent them.

Added an "all names" index to the Lineages section, ie across individual projects.

9th: Wanted! Fairbairns and other updates

I think I've finished tidying up all missing links, and have added all known researchers and patriarchs for all projects apart from ROWE.
For the ROWE project I have begun by adding the Devon lineage of two of the dna participants (my lot funnily enough ).
The FAIRBAIRN Wanted! page has had a couple more lineages links added in, more to come.
Remember that FamilyTree DNA are offering new test discounts until the end of December for kits ordered via a surname project.
Check out the respective project, and order via the Join this project link on the appropriate WorldFamlies site, or at Family Tree DNA - but make sure the order is via a surname project, or the discounts don't apply.

30th: What changed:

Tidied up some missing links and added a grouped alphabetic surname project index to aid site navigation.

In the lineage sections, the FAIRBAIRN project has had several missing links remedied, and a number of lineages added to the Wanted! section.
Ditto SINTONs.

NB if anyone is wondering whether to venture into the realm of DNA testing, now would be an excellent time as FamilyTreeDNA are offering Christmas discounts for new tests (as opposed to upgrades of existing ones).
The discounts only apply if you join via a surname project, so pick your surname of interest, and follow the Join Project links.

If you have any questions not answered by the FAQs available on the relevant project pages or at FamilyTree DNA, please don't hesitate to contact the Project Administrator, as we'd love for you to be reassured that this is a completely harmless process, and you wont have police knocking on your door because of your dna, nor any medical conditions exposed. Those are completely different, much more elaborate tests.

27th: It's the turn of the DAW(E)s

Check out the DAWE introductory page.
Although we only have one participant in this project so far, time will presumably remedy that.

So far, I've only included my main line under the WANTED! page.
When time permits I will add a couple of other Devon families that also connect in various ways.

Assorted SINTON data has also been tidied and published.

26th: Check out the RUNCIMAN additions

All the RUNCIMAN data has been reviewed to ensure that all participants are there with their accurate info, related lineages etc and cross linked to relevant information.

I believe this information is now completely up to date.

If you can help with a participant for the Wanted! list, I'd like to hear from you.
(This goes across the whole site, although I've yet to add the rest of the Wanted! lists.)

If you have bookmarked some of the underlying pages, the links may have changed as I reviewe/revise the database that drives these pages. Other than around the Haplogroup area, they shouldn't change after this, but no guarantees!

14th: FAIRBAIRN web page links updated

Added/updated a few FAIRBAIRN family related web sites.
Happy to add any other FAIRBAIRN family data sites you may want included.
(Still to add more of the FAIRBAIRN DNA participants and their lineages.)

12th: SINTON lineages

Added the Jedburgh and the Irish SINTON lineages.

Also tidied up several links and tweaked the navigation.

Check back soon, still a heap more people to add to the lineage section.

Might soon have some time to design a more relevant header picture!

9th: Site launched

Prototype DNA Projects Portal site launched. Definitely bare bones content on the lineage section, only two of the FAIRBAIRN lines are included to date.
Feedback, and more site links for each surname project, welcome.
