Welcome to the home page for those sharing a segment of dna on chromosome 01 and trying to figure out which ancestor is responsible for that.
We're actually cheating slightly with the group page name as it covers two adjacent segments:
  • the first (A) from 19-35mbp,
  • the second (B) from 40-61mbp.
Your DNA Project needs you


Common to both segments listed above from my viewpoint is a known third cousin who shares John DAVIDSON and Agnes FAIRBAIRN with me as our most recent common ancestral couple (MRCA).
The second of the two segments however throws in another known cousin where the MRCA is further back up the FAIRBAIRN side to Archibald FAIRBAIRN and Alison CROSSER.
Rather more intriguingly, there is also a match with a chap whose tree includes a Robert FREEBURN in New York by the early 1800s, who looks to have been born in Scotland somewhere between 1766 and 1784.


In order to help refine which ancestor(s) of our matches are responsible for the shared/inherited DNA it is very useful to have a range of tested descendants.
We would therefore particularly love to hear from descendants of any of the following who either have joined in the fun of autosomal dna testing, or who may be interested in doing so (see DNA Groups page for further information).
Links are to either WikiTree or FamilySearch, both collaborative one world trees where it is free to register and contribute.
With known descendants in the tested gene pool the matches become easier to assign to specific ancestral lines for further investigation of links between matches where the links are not known.

 Ancestral Couple   WikiTree Link   FamilySearch Link 
John DAVIDSON & Agnes FAIRBAIRN, marr. 1839, Chirnside, Berwickshire Agnes FAIRBAIRN (Some) Descendants of John & Agnes (FAIRBAIRN) DAVIDSON
Benjamin Franklin THOMPSON & Mary Ann JOHNSON, marr. 1879, Georgia
The person responsible for the segment A match is back up this lot somewhere.
  (Some) Ancestors of Benjamin Franklin & Mary Ann (JOHNSON) THOMPSON
Elizabeth FAIRBAIRN & William WILSON, marr. abt 1825 Berwickshire, Scotland
Would love to see if other descendants of this couple also have matches with the Fairbairn/Crosser descendants
  (Some) Desendants of William WILSON & Elizabeth FAIRBAIRN
Elizabeth FREEBURN & William ALFONT, Elizabeth being the daughter of Robert FREEBURN in New York
It would be great to confirm the segment B dna match comes from the FREEBURNs somewhere. Any tested descendants?

If registered for the site, you may find a chromosome map of the dna segments in the Histories link in the sidebar.
Some of the people mentioned are linked to their tree in DNAGeds tree
Do NOT believe such trees without verification as they are merely quick research into possible areas to explain dna matches.
