DNA Surnames RUNCIMANs updated

Check out the updated RUNCIMAN lineage pages.
I finally had time to catch up on a lot of the data missing behind the scenes.
There is probably no different information available on this site than scattered over the rest, but hopefully it is helpful to have access to it all in one place, or at least links to where it all is, and the format etc is so much easier for me to do updates as and when needed, with the potential for future additions.

If you spot any mistakes, or items you'd prefer shown differently, or not shown, just let me know, these pages are for the benefit of the RUNCIMAN Surname Project.
Also check out the Wanted link. If you have a particular family you'd like to see represented there, send me a basic outline gedcom, (no data on living people please), and it can be uploaded.

Even better, if you are an eligible representative of any lines shown under any of the Wanted links, there are some new test discounts available until the end of December.
Check out the details on the WFN pages for further details, looks like about $30US off.

I am aware that there are likely some missing or inconsistent links still to be fixed, particularly once you get into the haplogroup charts, so please bear with me while I continue tidying up behind the scenes.

And, yet again (3rd time), I've requested that Google stop marking this blog as spam. Each time it gets unlocked, it gets marked again straight away. Grrrr. However, I'll persist with this format for the project diary for a while yet as I really like the ability to filter by labels.

19th: Another good match

Full 37 marker results now in for the Peruvian connection of the family of James and Agnes (HERIOT) RUNCIMAN, and there's a good match with the NZ and American representatives.

Results table updated, and reorganised slightly, to better reflect the similarities between these lines.

Are no other RUNCIMAN families curious as to whether or not there's a match with the Scottish Borders farming community?
Any of the fisher folk?

How about some of the Fife lines, or the Australian immigrants?

Welcome to the new Runciman Surname DNA Project Blog.
Set up Nov 2008 to hold the Runciman Surname DNA Project diary and any discussions that may ensue from the project results.
The previous diary will be gradually transferred across.
DNA Project participants, and active RUNCIMAN family researchers are welcome to send me an email to gain authorship rights to this blog.
Anyone may add comments.
