In response to Phillip Minden, yes it is possible to prove descent from
people who lived hundreds of years ago, as explained in my article at
That is using a full autosomal test, not just Y chromosome, and in
combination with the "Paper Trail".

What sort of DNA do you mean? Other than the strictly patrlinear and the
strictly matrilinear lines, the current state of the art doesn't allow to
prove direct descent >from individual people who lived 500 or
600 years ago, I thought.
