My interest is primarily in keeping the FAIRBAIRN, RUNCIMAN, SINTON duplicates under control and connected to their rightful families on WikiTree, although I'll happily help anyone merge up detected duplicates.
Have you taken a DNA test for genealogy? If so, login to add it. If not, see our friends at Ancestry DNA.

I have a huge gedcom to upload, but as suggested, I need to break it up into smaller pieces. Thanks.

I then added George and his father George sending you reply that seemed to have bounced back.

My "association" with FTDNA is purely as a satisfied customer, and as a, completely volunteer, administrator for a number of projects. I have also tested with ancestry (grrr, people testing there really do need to learn GEDMatch.com exists given their woeful lack of tools for working with the actual dna as opposed to fanciful trees) and also with 23andme.

wonderful thought. However I suggest that you use the WikiTree affiliate link and benefit them given the wonderful free service they provide us https://affiliate.familytreedna.com/idevaffiliate.php?id=600 and at the moment there's a 15% discount going for tests over $99 at FTDNA as well. CJS2015
On the other hand :) should anyone feel grateful any help I have given them with their dna results and /or genealogy, donations are always accepted by my autosomal dna project FFLornaHen https://www.familytreedna.com/group-general-fund-contribution.aspx?g=FFLornaHen Lorna http://LornaHen.com

That certainly looks like it to me all the names match. I've downloaded my GEDCOM from Genes Reunited now so will up load to Wiki Tree next week when I return home, (visiting family). Looks like I've come to the right place many thanks for the message and I look forward to speaking with you further on the matter. Geoff

I'd suggest that you join the Caithness Family History Society, and their members only mailing list as many of them are indeed researching Sutherlands. "best" for DNA really depends on exactly what you want to achieve, but most genetic genealogists do indeed recommend FamilyTree DNA for both their range of tests, and their projects with volunteer project admins, such as me :) to help you, ++. 23andme doesn't do Y-DNA only autosomal (atDNA, equivalent to FamilyFinder). Its main plus was the health aspects that FTDNA don't do, but that aspect is currently on hold. ancestry also do atDNA where their main plus is the associated trees, but no way of compaing your actual chromosome data to prove that the tree suggestions are accurate - and only send to US addresses Hope this helps

I've certainly just fallen into a hotbed of Sutherlands. If there's a group working on this area, then I can contribute what I have. I currently lived in France but when I get back to the UK [later this year] I'll sort out the DNA thing. Is the company you recommend the best? I saw the site for 23AndMe too.

Thanks for your message. I've thought a little about a DNA testing. I'll have a look at the link. I've seen your trees in a couple of places on line and, like you said, there's no one [yet] in common. It's astonishing. I didn't find anyone in common when I posted my tree on here. My main challenge at the moment is tracking down Jane Miller [b: 1885] as well as all of their family.
