Have you reached a dead end and cannot find any documents on your ancestors? Not a clue to be found? Wondering if you are related to another family with the same surname?
Science has given us the ultimate tool to solve these dilemmas - DNA Testing. This simple test of swabbing the inside of our cheek has the ability to help us find our "cousins" by comparing the results of as few as two males still carrying the name. Males are able to see if another male is a descendant from their direct paternal line.
The 25-marker test yields the world's tightest parameters to the Most Recent Common Ancestor (MRCA). The 25-marker kit is $169 + tax as the initial test This test looks at the DNA in the Y-chromosome within males. This is one of the sex chromosomes and is responsible for maleness. All males have one in each cell and copies are passed down (virtually) unchanged from FATHER to SON each generation.
Here is a link to the test kit to see what it looks like & instructions:
Now, in order to find these links in our families, we have to have the volunteers to come forward and order a kit.
Please help us prove scientifically how our other lines connect? We are hoping for other male volunteers to come forward and help make the discovery with the DNA testing which cannot be argued with. IT WILL TELL US THE ULTIMATE TRUTH.
