This biography is mainly a rough draft. It was auto-generated by a GEDCOM import and needs to be edited.
This Archibald has been shown as the son of Archibald Fairbairn and Mary Grierson.
I (Lorna) believe he belongs with Archibald and Alison because:
- the naming pattern of the children of Archibald and Janet
- closer dna matches between proven descendants of Archibald and Janet, Archibald's brother David, and of his nephew Walter.
In addition, Archibald and Mary would have had rather a hard time fitting him in between their other children.
Given these, and other dna results, the families are however highly likely to be reasonably closely related, forming a sub lineage of the overall matching Borders FAIRBAIRNs that the FAIRBAIRN Surname DNA project shows as being related.

It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Janet by comparing test results with other carriers of her mitochondrial DNA.
However, there are no known mtDNA test-takers in her direct maternal line.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Janet:
