The Y-DNA test has to be a direct descendant Barnes Male because the Y chromosome only follows father to son.

You could do a mitochondrial test on the X chromosome and hope someone else has tested in that line. Pretty rare odds. I just wondered if one of my Davidson County Barnes' went to Harnett Co., NC Thanks for uploading to GEDmatch.

Hi Donald, this is my maternal grandmother's line, and I actually just found it through the overwhelming amount of matches on new thrulines. I have not done any dna tests past autosomal, but if I wanted to get the Y-Dna for this line, it would have to be from my brother, or maternal uncle, is that correct? Thanks for reaching out!

Hi Stephanie, both my father and I share a weak match to you on GEDmatch. Have you found anyone in your Barnes line who has Y-DNA tested ?
