Ancrum weaver tweaks

Detailed project pages have had a few date & place tweaks for the family of Thomas FAMILTON of Ancrum.

Birdhope Craig, Northumberland

The Patriarchs page has had a few more twigs added to the family of Thomas & Ann FAMILTON of Elsdon whose children were baptised at Birdhope Craig Presbyterian.
There must be someone still around to represent this family in the FAMILTON Surname DNA project to see if they're a match to the other line(s).

Behind the scenes


Behind the scenes of DNASurnames.info has been some renumbering work to make the site easier to maintain, and link as necessary, to other sites.
A rather overdue review showed that quite a few bits were broken as a result.
Fixed, along with another twig being added to the Wanted chart for William and Elizabeth (WILSON) FAMILTON.
It would be really really great to get a participant from this line into the project to see if there's a match with FT-1.

Don't forget the women!

Although this is a Surname DNA project, and thus emphasis is on the male of the species, we have recruited a direct maternal line descendant from an early FAMILTON family to see what that might tell us.
The recruit descends from Bessie FAMILTON's daughter Margaret RUNCHAMAN, so the results will also be of interest to the RUNCIMAN project.

The World Family Network FAMILTON Summary pages have been updated to include an outline pedigree for William FAMILTON of Earlston, and including a potential line in Australia able to represent the family.
