You may find this link of interest The FAIRBAIRN Surname DNA project would love to find a direct male line FAIRBAIRN for this line to see if they match any of those already in the project. Non FAIRBAIRN descendants need not feel left out, all dna test participants are welcome - try FamilyFinder instead. Who knows what connections we might find. Lorna
