     An ancestry DNA match between myself (Lorna) and a descendant of the Jane ROBERTSON, born Stirlingshire, married to George HUTTON of Lochwinnoch and Fintry, and buried in Richmond, Quebec, is looking promising as a lead to the ancestry/connections of the mysterious Amelia MILLAR, born Kippen, whose mother was supposedly a Miss CHRYSTAL"

We would love to hear from any descendants of Jane, or her siblings, who have ventured into DNA testing for genealogy so this could be explored furhter. Please upload your results to GEDmatch.com.10
