Ancestry.com has reduced the cost of DNA testing to 50% until September 30, 2008. I urge members of the Hasten family here and any abroad to send for a paternal lineage Y-DNA 46 test and send it in. You don't need to have a subscription to Ancestry.com to take the test and get results. A group can be created on Ancestry.com for the various Hiestand/Haston/Hasten/Hastings etc. surnames. You'll also be noitified by email via Ancestry.com of any matches. I think this will help tie the various strands together or dispell some of the origination myths. Thanks!
