Hello there, my name Is Dale and have been involved in genealogy for some 25 years. I completed my DNA in 2012 through Family Tree, Kit#250191. I am researching my GGGGrandfather William and his brother Alexander Wishart who came to the Miramichi the the early 1770's to fish salmon and start a business. They left the Miramichi in 1776 and fought against the Americans on the Great Lakes until 1873. They both received commissions under General Haldimand. They returned to the Miramichi shortly there after and started a company called "Wishart and Company" with a number of others. To date I have not had much success in finding out where we came from in Scotland. I await more Wishart's etc. having their DNA completed .

thank you

The date for "Great Lakes" should read - 1783 not 1873

my mistake !!
