Lineage updates

A few tweaks have been made to the Patriarchs page:
- info added to the family of George WIGHT of Carfrae, Berwickshire, Scotland
- additional data on Wights of Bowden and Maxton - to distinguish descendant William from the following William
- added stub for William WIGHT born abt 1820 Scotland, emigrated to Iowa via Ohio
- Prince Edward Island Archibald WIGHT pedigree for our last set of results (W-5) added

Representatives, or further representatives, needed from all of the above.

Time to test

A great time to explore relationships between WIGHT   (and surname variant) families.
FamilytreeDNA have announced their annual sale:

We would  love to hear from any direct male line WIGHT wishing to explore his family history and do his bit for our understanding of the connections between the various lines.

We would particularly love to hear from him if he belongs to any of the families listed in the  One Name Study Wanted! page, or any WIGHT, or similar surnames, not listed anywhere as yet.
(Further information available on the  WFN Summary Patriarchs page )

We prefer Y-DNA67 tests to explore closeness of relationships, but for initial exploration of matches, Y-DNA37 is a good starting point.

A subsidy may be available for some lines.

Contact details to explore this option, or for any further information,  available in the footer of most project pages.

31st: Pedigree updates

Included an outline pedigree for the family of John & Janet (HISLOP) WIGHT, and added a few new twigs to the outline pedigree for James & Margaret (HOUD) WIGHT, both with Scottish Borders origins, and both still needing representatives.
Given that there are now a couple of other Borders lines represented, it would be good to see if there's a match.
Still a little bit of time left to grab the discounts going at the moment.
So, if you are a direct male line descendant of the above, or any, WIGHT line, Just follow the links in the post for the 1st December to ensure they discounts are applied.
