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 Virgil's genealogy.

Especially helpful for some serious genetic genealogists is the inheritance pattern for Virgil's X chromosome, also shown here. The DNA Descendants page shows exactly who has inherited Virgil's testable DNA.
