Re: Testing Elders
In Response To: Re: Testing Elders ()

Hello Toot,

Great explanations on who can be tested for DNA lineages.

This example points to a need to find the siblings of our ancestors and then the descendants of those siblings. AND in keeping track of the lines that can be used there is a deinfite need for ancestral charting. What we've been calling "whole family genealogy".

The results I recieved from my Y-DNA and mtDNA through FamilyTreeDNA (25MarkerDNA+&HVR1&HVR2Plus) solidified, but not necessarily confirming the ethnic background, note I did not say ....race :), of a paternal great-grandfather and that of a maternal 3rd great-grandmother. Thanks to you and your direction, these results then sent me to the AncestryByDNA for the admixture or biogeographical analysis (BGA).

Again, thanks for your help and keep on teaching,

Art Thomas
