Ancestry's DNA test is an autosomal test, and not likely to give you any useful information about a connection to an ancestor born in 1271. It only goes back 5-6 generations. Is your son's surname Broussard? Does he have a direct Broussard male line back to Antoine Broussard? If yes, you may be able to find a connection by having him take a yDNA test from Family Tree DNA. First join the Broussard surname project: https://www.familytreedna.com/group-join.aspx?Group=Broussard and you will save some money on the cost of the test. I'd recommend he take a yDNA 37 marker test to start.

Hey Debra,

I re-tagged your post with DNA so the project people will get this post in their feed.

I Googled Brossard DNA Project and came up with the Brossard DNA Project

Look through the names especially the MDA (most distant ancestors) and see if you can find someone who shares your lineage.  That would be where I would start.

Be interesting to do some searching for him in specific.  Also, sdd his profile to WikiTree so that others may find a connection to him and possibly a connection to you.

Hope this helps!
