Re: DNA testing of ancestral MATERIAL ... #dna
Hi Andrewtoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I think you are asking something that is a stretch. I suppose that the FBI
does this if they needed to track a terrorist, but what we offer are tests
that need to be repetitive, cookie cutter type, tests so we can keep the
costs down. Since most people have cousins who are direct descendents of
these people who have passed away, we can get DNA samples in that way.
In cases where cousins are not available some people have suggested DNA
analysis >from teeth or bones, both of which would work, and the up charge
would be pretty minimal for those alternative DNA specimens.

Hi. Are you able to test DNA-containing material, as opposed to cheek swabs?
