DNA Ancestors and DNA Descendants DNA view
Genetic genealogy is the new frontier. Our two DNA views are designed to help you use genetic testing to confirm and expand Samuel's genealogy. The DNA Ancestors page shows the specific ancestors from whom Samuel gets his Y chromosome and mitochondrial DNA. Especially helpful for some serious genetic genealogists is the inheritance pattern for Samuel's X chromosome, also shown here. The DNA Descendants page shows exactly who has inherited Samuel's testable DNA.
