18th: Shifted

Getting too confused about where to post information.
If that was confusing me, the author, no doubt you, the visitor, was also confused.

A new (multiple) project(s) diary, Runcimans All, has now been created, and covers both the One Name Study and DNA Project activity.
Working assumption is that if you are interested in one, you are likely interested in the other!

These posts have all been migrated, but also left here to cope with any links that may still point to posts here.

Bookmark the new page.

4th: George & Janet (DARLING) RUNCIMAN

A very brief descendant summary for the family of George and Janet (DARLING) RUNCIMAN has now been included on the DNA Summary Patriarchs page.
As it is oriented to lines who may be able to furnish a dna project representative for this line (ie a direct male line RUNCIMAN descendant of George) those interested in some of the others in the family may care to look at the RUNCIMAN One Name Study pages instead where a slightly fuller chart, but still incomplete, is included.

23rd: Confirming signature

New results just in provide a confirming signature for the line of Thomas and Isabella (CRAIG), Thomas being a descendant of Thomas and Alison (GRIEVE), and at 37 markers, show an exact match to the Earlston/Wanton Walls line of David and Margaret (BROWN).
Supplementary pages have been updated, including the overall chart providing a theoretical lineage 1.

18th: Possible lineage 1 linkages?

The summary results page has been updated to include the last two sets of results (lineage 1).
In addition the patriarchs page has had a link corrected and also now includes a brief outline for one of the Perthshire RUNCIMAN lines, that of Alexander and Elizabeth (BOYD), some of whose descendants emigrated to Ontario. Within Scotland associated places were Errol and Inchture, Perthshire; Orwell, Kinross; Penicuik, Midlothian.
This looks like the line of Robert (Bob) RUNCIMAN MPP Leeds & Grenville, Ontario.
As usual, a representative for this, and any other, line would be welcome.

Take a look at the new theoretical dna signature chart for Lineage 1.
All suggestions on how to better link up the related families welcome.

This blog: the labels for posts are in the process of being converted from full names to forenames for RUNCIMANs and surnames only for those who are not - purely to save space in the list of labels.

12th: Lineage 1 results added

Full 67 marker results are now in for Peter (R-12) and Jim (R-10), and show in the overall grid for the Supplementary pages.
Their individual pages have also been updated to include the genetic distances to their matches.

Still to come: the dna signature chart update to include them in the overall picture (theoretical), as the Family Tree DNA Time Predictor isn't yet showing the percentages.

We now have excellent matches between four lines in Lineage 1: that of William of Crail (with East Lothian descendants), the Runcimans of Earlston and Lauder (Wanton Walls), and now also Alexander and Janet (HENDRIE) of Meikle Pinkerton (ELN), and Thomas and Alison (GRIEVE) of Dunbar.
Mostly however they are represented by a sole participant. Distant cousins of those already in the project would be gratefully received to clarify and confirm how to link these families up for the DNA Signature.

To join the project, read the information about testing available on our summary pages on the World Families Network, and click the Order link from there to ensure that you are getting the discounts available by testing through a surname project.
Some of the lines we are particularly looking for at the moment, (but all are welcome) are shown in our Wanted! pages.

6th: Lineage 1

Although only preliminary results are in for two of the new kits, Jim (R-10) and Peter (R-12), it does rather look like we have a match with Lineage 1.
The supplementary project pages now include additional lineages to reflect this.
This has also led to Alexander (marr. Janet HENDRIE) being added to the pages and an extension to the Wanted! chart for Thomas and Jean (SIMPSON), given that we now have a bit of a conundrum to solve.
Representatives for each of the suggested sons of Thomas and Jean are being sought to help clarify the dna results so far received.

15th: Progress report

Another of the outstanding kits has reached the lab.
Must have been just in time for the week's batching as both (R-12) and the earlier one back, (R-10), are in batch 369, with first results scheduled for 27th August, final by 10th Sep.
