Wanlass family history mystery

I have been contacted by Jay Wanless Southwich concerning a family mystery of his, which he has asked me to share with readers, to see if they may have a connection. Jay is trying to find out about a Scottish ancestor, James Wanlass (1825 – 1895), a miner who didn’t know his parents, but who shares a Y-chromosomal DNA profile with a baker named James Wanless (1827 – 1877). They both lived in the Edinburgh area, and Jay thinks they may have been cousins.

Jay has created a blog on the subject at , so if you fancy a challenge, or if you have a connection, do pop along to have a look!
