Interpretation superimposed on Table of Kinship

Update 2017: We have made substantial progress with many of these and I have updated the table below to reflect this. There are however, many new stray branches that have been discovered since then which will be added to a new table shortly.

A table of kinship was produced in an article in the Scaife Sentinel "Are you related to a fellow SSG member?" Issue 13 (Aug 2001), pp4-6,28-29.

This was periodically updated as the historical evidence was unearthed and extracts are reproduced here as it appeared in the 2006 update (see pdf attachment below).

Our objective is to superimpose the results from the DNA project onto the Table of Kinship in order to refine and validate the conclusions that were drawn from the genealogical record. The table compiled below will be updated as further results are accrued.
