We have our first male Bearse Y-DNA test ordered, so hope to have a POSSIBLE answer to the Gypsy question in 4-6 weeks!Still looking for a maternal line descendent of one of Austin's 9 daughters.
I've moved my updates to the Bearse Yahoo group - it's a pretty active forum with lots of interest and discussion going on re the DNA project. I encourage you to join that group at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/BEARCE/http://groups.yahoo.com/group/BEARCE/
I'll post once more here when the first results are in, with a link to the results page on the project website.
