Welcome to the home page for those sharing a segment of dna on chromosome 18 and trying to figure out which ancestor is responsible for that.


Stirlingshire: Most recent common ancestry of two 2nd cousins matching on this segment is the couple William HENDERSON & Helen Sinton WIGHT who married in Otago, NZ 1876 but came from Lanarkshire and Roxburghshire respectively, with the Lanarkshire being a move from St Ninians, Stirlingshire.
Stirlingshire also features in the ancestry of one of the matches on two lines, that of an Elizabeth McDOUGALL (b. 1823 St Ninians - married James PROVAN).
Their daughter-in-law Agnes MUIR was born Muiravonside (Stirlingshire), family from just across the border in Linlithgow.
Noted with curiousity that her great grandmother was an Agnes HENDERSON who would have to have been born before 1785. Wonder if she might be a/the link?
Another on the match list has a JOHNSON/BROWN couple who married 1838 Stirling, and a RENNIE/ARTHUR couple from Cumbernauld whose son married in Stirling (1869).
Perthshire: The largest segment match has ancestry around Port of Menteith, Kincardine by Doune and Kilmadock. Surnames: JACK, JUNKIN or JENKINS, RICHARDS or RITCHIE, NIELSON


We would particularly love to hear from descendants of any of the following couples 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.

Do NOT believe such trees without verification as they are merely quick research into possible areas to explain dna matches.
