Happy DNA Day! plus kits
DNA Day is a holiday celebrated on April 25. It commemorates the day in 1953 when James Watson, Francis Crick, Maurice Wilkins, Rosalind Franklin and colleagues published papers in the journal Nature on the structure of DNA.
DNA testing companies will sometimes offer sales at this time of year.
Y-DNA37 (new and add-on)…. $119(was $149)
Y-DNA67 (new and add-on)…. $199(was $238)
These tests are for males and test the Y chromosome, thus testing the surname lines.
37 markers would tell which lineage you would match. 67 would add even more verification.
If you do not match Hinkley/Hinckley, then your results may match someone in the largest Y-DNA database.
I’ve seen these sales come and go and this is a great deal.
They are promoting mtDNA but that is the maternal line only and would not help your Hinckley line.
To order and join group (both Hinkley and Hinckley)--
A new member joined last month with a 37 marker test and another just ordered the 67 marker test.
We will see how different members on different branches of tree have different markers (or mutations) and thus able to identify and verify paper trails. See
