I also had a Jewish father and Gentile mother. If the Y-DNA test is
for the male only side and the mtDNA test deals with the males and
females on the mother's side, how do I get tested for my father's
DNA? I am a female two XX chromasomes, no brother or other male
relative on my fathers side. Mother a gentile.

How do I get DNA information >from my fathers side? My father died
in 1962.
