Hello, everyone. I am related to the Dunbars through my father's mother.
My earliest known ancestor was Shadrack/Shedreck Dunbar (1804-?). His son was Oliver Dunbar (1843-?). His daughter was Eva L Dunbar (1866-1955). Eva married in to the Miner family (Wayne, NY) and she was my 2x great grandmother.
Shadreck Dunbar may have been one of the first settlers in Michigan, but I cant find anything about him, other than a son or brother named George who did live there.
If anyone is a descendant or understands this particular line, I would like to know more!

“Does anyone know the verification for stating on the Pedigree page the lineage from William Dunbar and wife, Ann Sullivan, to John Dunbar and wife, Bessie Watt, to John Dunbar and wife, Mary Anderson? Others seem to think that maybe there is a Robert or two in there somewhere. I know the lineage is correct from John Dunbar and wife, Sarah Chilton. John may have had a first wife named Ann McBride.”

Hi, could one of the administrators please fix a couple of errors in the DNA results chart?
The first error is No. 42 Kit: 131560 is in the wrong group. You have him in the ZP78 group. His SNP R-A15898 does not sit with or under ZP78. This kit should be on its own or with other kits that full under ZP8.
The second error is “Lineage 01e Distant - L257>ZP375>Z380>S5739>ZP78>S5443” the problem with this is that S5443 is not downstream of ZP78, it is a sibling to ZP78, so ZP78 should not be in this description.

My matches show a relation of genetic distance one to a Dunbar - is there some reason I am listed as a non=related member of this group, when tests show I am?

News of interest to those who's ancestors were involved in the English Civil Wars.It is with great pleasure that the Board of the Scottish Prisoners of War Society, Inc. has acquired control of Teresa Rust’s excellent WordPress blog website. https://scottishprisonersofwar.com/ The Society also has acquired the facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/scottishprisonersofwar/ the twitter page https://twitter.com/OfficialSPOWS/with_replies?lang=en and the Instagram page https://www.instagram.com/scottish_prisoners_of_war_soc/
These media were generously donated to the Society by Teresa after her excellent work creating and growing the assets into top search results. Teresa has been appointed as Executive Director of the Society and will continue to have editorial and moderator control of these media. She realized that these media need continuity. The prisoners story began over 368 years ago and will continue through their many present descendants. Our great-great etc grandchildren will continue to learn about their ancestors. They might be the ones who finally realize, with future technology and digitization of old records, where their SPOW came from in Scotland. The website, facebook and twitter accounts will be protected from expiring credit cards, domain expirations, illness or death of any one person. The Society also has the ability to protect the memory of our prisoners from false or nefarious use by the unscrupulous and cyber criminals.
The Society looks forward to our cooperation with the Scottish Soldiers Project at Durham University in the excellent ongoing research they are conducting.
