Introduction

Welcome to the home page for those sharing a segment of dna on chromosome 11 and trying to figure out which ancestor is responsible for that.
Your DNA Project needs you From matches within the HENDERSON diaspora we know that from that viewpoint this segment was inherited from Archibald HENDERSON, Smith at the Bridge of Allan, or his wife Margaret McEWAN.
There are quite a few matches at this spot but it doesn't seem to have the usual characteristics of a sticky bit of dna, and several of the matches do appear to have Scottish Ancestry.
So can we find any commonality between our trees to chip away at the brickwall of where on earth did Archibald HENDERSON came from?
Or determine that this is a McEWAN ancestry segment?

Names/places

To date it looks like we can possibly explore the Irish ancestry of a James McFADDEN who was in British Columbia 1850/60 - and JONES from Wales!
More helpfully, one match appears to have a goodly section of his ancestral tree from Polmont/Falkirk/Muiravonside, Stirlingshire.

Wanted!

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.

Chromosome Map

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.
