Dunbar family & transcripts

Check out the updated RUNCIMAN One Name Study (ONS) pages.

A couple of updated entries have been added to the researchers list (one not yet linked to his main interest, the George RUNCIMAN who married Janet DARLING, primarily because the family hasn't yet been included in any detail).

The main changes have been to start including the family of Alexander RUNCIMAN & Janet HENDRIE of Dunbar, at least down to the Thomas who married Jean/Jane/Christina SIMPSON.

Also now included are the Dunbar Old Parish Register (OPR) transcripts done by Barbara that were originally published on Steve Gibbs' Rootsweb Mailing List introductory pages.
Links have been added to families already included in some form on the ONS pages.

26th: Sale extended

Family Tree DNA have extended the time period for ordering kits at the discount prices until Jun 30th - so still time to be in and find where your RUNCIMAN line "fits".
Read the details in the blog for the 5th.

Summary result page has been updated with placeholders for the three kits ordered as part of the sale and hopefully winging there way back to the lab - details to follow.

16th: Two more kits ordered

The project has grown by two, details later once results are in.

Still 9 days to go to get your order in at sale prices - much too good an opportunity to miss.
We'd particularly love to hear from you if your RUNCIMAN line is not yet represented.

9th: Temporary email glitch

Be aware that the project email address (RuncimanDNA) is currently undergoing a bit of a gmail glitch, hopefully temporary.
Should it bounce, try again later!

5th: Family Tree DNA Summer Sale

Now would be an excellent time to jump in and represent your RUNCIMAN line in the Surname DNA Project.
Our testing company, FamilyTree DNA, have announced a "sizzling summer sale" which reduces the already discounted test prices available via the project by a further $40US.

Bullet Y-DNA37 for $119 (Regular price would be $149)
Bullet Y-DNA67 for $199 (Regular price would be $239)
Bullet Y-DNA37+mtDNA for $159 (Combined test would cost $238)

The promotion will start June 5 and will end June 25. Kits need to be paid for by June 30, 2010.

The 37 marker test would be the minimum to determine which, if any, of the existing documented lines you may belong to.

To make sure that any order is at the above prices, use the Join Project links on any of the project pages:

Supplementary pages

Summary pages

There are still several known Borders lines that are particularly being sought, so we would love to hear from you, or any other RUNCIMANs from anywhere interested in their past.
