GFG16

Guthries of Dunbartonshire & Lanarkshire Scotland

Two lineages from opposite hemispheres find their roots in Dunbartonshire, Scotland, one from Victoria, Australia and the other from Ontario, Canada. There are still a few grey areas in the two earliest generations that need to be sorted, but the Y-DNA match is conclusive identifying our participants as descending from the same direct lineage. Their most recent common ancestors are Robert Guthrie and Janet Andrew of Dunbartonshire and later Govan, Glasgow, Lanarkshire. The identity of Robert’s parents is less certain, but believed to be William Guthrie and Elizabeth McNair/McKenais.
