I have a handful of hair of my mother, who died in 1991. My brother gave me her hair to keep as a relic of her, since i never knew her in this life. My mother had seven sons. All of us except one (who is dead) have tested, and are genetically proven to be half-brothers to each other and thus sons of our mother. But i'd very much like to have her hair tested anyway. However, if what the the article here indicated states is true, that no DNA useful for Y-Dna and AuDna testing is to be found in the hair (but only in the follicles), then i don't see the purpose of having her hair tested. For i have the same MtDna as my mother. And her hair would only tell me what i already know.
