Chester, I guess I did not state my question clearly. But first let me thank for your reply. I was wondering since I am a male Kincaid and my grandmother is a female Atkins would her Atkins DNA be part of my human make-up? Would I not also pass the male Atkins markins in me? My grandmother Atkins along with my grandfather Kincaid was the chemical make-up of my father and so forth. I am new to the DNA world but have been trying. I know that the male id the one Family Tree DNA is looking at for the moment. When you have your DNA marking Family Tree set up on the internet it would be interestion for me to look at your DNA markins and compare them with mine. I had the 25 markers tested. Thanks for all you are doing for the Atkins genealogy DNA search.
