Hair Tests #dna

Bcg <bcg@...>

Hello Harold

Hair without a bulb is not useful, and hair with the bulb is good for mtDNA
but not for the Y chromosome. On the other hand your grandfathers DNA was
passed down to the next generation if he had a son, and is available for us
to use readily if your grandfathers had a son who had a son. presumable
that would be you, or a male cousin of yours.
