DNA Chain
CAN WE LINK THE FAIRHALL/FAIRALL FAMILIES ACROSS THE WORLD?

So far, I have been able to document 20 Fairall and Fairhall families across the world, each containing at least 50 people and almost all with origins in East Sussex. And there are many more people and events recorded that could fit into those families if we were able to obtain the necessary evidence.
I would love contact from anyone with Fairall or Fairhall connections to increase my family data and possibly open up links between the families. Due to time constraints I do not presently intend to put that data on this site, as much of it is already published in other locations.
As a way to possibly connect some of the families, I have established a DNA database through Ancestry. If you are interested, please explore the DNA questions and answers at: Ancestry DNA FAQs
