Please register with your appropriate chromosome match group. It would be great to collaborate to find our common ancestor(s).


Welcome to the home page for those sharing a segment of dna on chromosome 15 and trying to figure out which ancestor is responsible for that.


Kippen, Stirlingshire: several of the matches share James HENDERSON & Amelia MILLAR.
My personal hope is that a papertrail may eventually be found to connect Amelia MILLAR's mother, supposedly a Miss CHRYSTAL, and the family of David MILLAR & Elizabeth CHRYSTAL, now that we have a DNA match between descendants (this blogpost refers).
Others in the group also have ancestral lines from the area:
The most promising being the family of David MILLAR and Elizabeth CHRYSTAL of Kippen (these blog posts refer).
Also in the matches, and with ancestors from around Stirlingshire comes the brother of a fellow Runciman researcher, much to our surprise!
The likely ancestral line, yet to be proven, being that of John MOUAT or MOWAT and Marjory MUIRHEAD of Falkirk, Stirlingshire.
Your DNA Project needs you


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.

Amelia MILLAR b. abt Feb 1817, Kippen, Stirlingshire, mother supposedly a Miss CHRYSTAL Amelia Amelia

John MOUAT and Marjory MUIRHEAD marr. 1833, Falkirk ancestry assumed John MOWAT John MOUAT
Possibly ancestry of John ARBUCKLE and Agnes DOWIE marr. 1835, Kirkliston (WLN) & Kirknewton (MLN)   John ARBUCKLE
Possibly ancestry of Andrew REID and Jean BARROWMAN in Saline, Fife   Andrew REID

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.
