GRAHAM is rather a common surname, particularly around the Border Reiver area where mine came from.
These pages attempt to document some of mine, and, as it now (Jul 2014) turns out, some of our American cousins' (see this blog post for why).

In addition to the above descendants of Andrew & Jane GRAHAM of Cumberland, some of the GRAHAM families being investigated for the papertrail connections to back up the FamilyFinder DNA matches may be found in the WorldConnect database LornaPotential, eg

DNA

Can we prove the possible relationships highlighted in the blog post referred to above?

In particular, we would love to hear from direct male line GRAHAM descendants of Andrew and Jane to add at least a Y-DNA37, preferably Y-DNA67, test to our arsenal
No blood involved, painless, done in the privacy of your own home. (Click here for some general reading about dna testing for genealogy.
We have no known comparisons at this stage, on either side of the pond, but somewhere in the GRAHAM DNA project there might be a match lurking.

Widening our information beyond direct male lines and using autosomal DNA (FamilyTree DNA's FamilyFinder test), we have found that even though any relationship is well back beyond the advertised extent of the test (4 to 6 generations), we have two predicted 2nd to 4th cousin matches to one participant, and a 4th to remote for another, on Andrew's side, to what turned out to be one branch of a GRAHAM family in America by at least 1715/20.

Subsequent investigations amongst the matches has led to further more distant predicted matches being found.
The following is a preliminary draft chromosome map showing the overlapping segments of dna shared, where the assumed ancestor has a GRAHAM connection, back beyond say 1690 given when the American branches are found in records.
This date makes Andrew of Fauld the earliest possible of our known GRAHAM ancestors who could be the shared ancestor, OR any of his forbears, OR any of the other GRAHAM lines that married into Andrew's family over the generations!

The following charts show, for each earliest documented ancestor, the descendants who are the most recent common ancestors (MRCA) of the FamilyFinder matches contributing to the data. For Andrew of Fauld's line (see descendant chart above), all participants share Stephen GRAHAM (m. Jane BATY) as the most recent GRAHAM in their ancestry.
