Relationships confirmed, or at least corroborated, using DNA testing for genealogy


With Jane GIBSON's brickwall cracked, that leaves:
at my 2* great-grandparent level
William AUSTIN
at the 3* great-grandparent level'
Eleanor SCOTT
Others being worked on
In addition to any holes in my own pedigree, the below is/are personal categories used to keep track of the pedigrees/descendant charts of connected DNA matches being worked on to find the tree connections and solve a brickwall, or two.
Looking for someone to research, why not work on extending any of the pedigrees included and see if any connect to any of the others or crack the mystery?

Ancestry clusters

The following are clusters of DNA matches connecting families - somehow.
We just have to find the connections that the DNA is showing us exists!!

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.


  • Maternal and Paternal atDNA matches between cousins both sides, 1st and 2nd ++, show parents confirmed with DNA
  • Paternal relationship is confirmed by an autosomal MyHeritageDNA test match between Lorna Henderson and Jean (Robertson) Rushworth, her 3rd cousin . Their most-recent common ancestors are James Henderson and Amelia Millar, the great great grandparents of both Lorna Henderson and Jean (Robertson) Rushworth. Predicted relationship from MyHeritageDNA: 3C, based on sharing 62 cM across 3 segments.

Their most-recent common ancestors are William Rowe and Honor Daw, the great great grandparents of Lorna Henderson and great grandparents of Living Bennett.

DNA Connections
It may be possible to confirm family relationships by comparing test results with Lorna or other carriers of her ancestors' mitochondrial DNA. Mitochondrial DNA test-takers in the direct maternal line: It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share some percentage of DNA with Lorna:

There are serveral profiles you manage with a separator (?) in the location or in the name. You can set the status as uncertain instead of adding a (?). Would you be willing to make these edits? Let me know if you need any help. Linda Data Doctor

I fix as I find, and tidy, the imorted profiles these came in with Linda - when time permits.

Hi Lorna

Responding here as it makes sense as we do indeed connect and we did originally contact each other back in 2005 regarding the Murrays in Otterburn, Northumberland. I think it will be ok to merge our records for James Patterson Murray but you will need to agree to the place and date of death in mine (I thought I had him before and that is the information you have but I really did find his death 5 years later in Otterburn. I'm also curious where you found his birthdate as it wasn't on the baptism records from the church in Reay.

I have done DNA through Ancestry and have uploaded to a few places. I can't remember having it done at 23andme but I have emails from them. Didn't they get bought out or merge with someone else?

Will email separately to continue our conversations. Lovely to be in touch again

Hello. I am the male Henderson you have been looking for. There may have been others who said they were me but they are imposters. Archibald, James and William of Perthshire are on my list. Nice to meet you cousin.

Oh so tempting the profile of Janet Shakelton Grieve, d/o James Shackelton and Janet Gray. Have you given me a clue why James Gray born 1821 emigrated with my Strachan family - which also have a connection to my Shackelton on that same line?
Good work on Robert Grieve's profile [Grieve-769]. Doesn't appear to be related (yet) to my husband's maternal Grieve line.

Thank you,

Hi Lorna - I stumbled on your site http://lornahen.com and noticed that you are here on Wikitree.

My search was for the parents of Janet Jack (Jack-2163) 1813-1871 wife of Robert Paterson - both immigrated from Kincardine, Scotland to Canada around 1836-7. You have them with Janet Jack's parents as James Jack and Janet Junkin (1786-1791). If you have sources for James and Janet would you mind sharing or adding them to Wikitree?

I do so wish WikiTree had automatically opened all the profiles of people born between 150 and 200 years ago when they had been originally loaded with the default privacy options and the default changed!

Although I do suppose a review of older loads does result in tidying up a bit :)

posted by Lorna Henderson

This profile should be open because the birth date is greater than 150 years in the past. Can this profile be changed to open so others can help with improving it.

Thanks! Peggy
