DNA Ancestors and DNA Descendants DNA view
Designed to help you use genetic testing to confirm and expand Babe's genealogy. The DNA Ancestors page shows the specific ancestors from whom Babe gets his Y chromosome and mitochondrial DNA.

The DNA Descendants page shows exactly who has inherited Babe's testable DNA.

DNA Ancestor Confirmation Aid check mark
A step beyond the DNA Ancestors and DNA Descendants views. The ambitious goal: scientific confirmation of each parent-child relationship in Babe's tree.
