DNA Research #DNA Which DNA test? #dna

arnold friedman <afriedman21@...>

hi everyone,

my wife's mother is 91, and the only possible test is a swab sample (not spit).

i see that Family Tree DNA has swab test
Is there a way to do ancestry by putting the end of the qtip swab in the tube?
Other recommendations for swab tests?

the most difficult line with genealogy research is my wife's mother's
maternal grandfather's family. my genealogy research is back through
the early 1800s on the maternal grandmother side.

assuming familytreedna is the best solution, please advise whether i
should get autosomal DNA test >from familytreedna or the mtdna test?
one chat person >from family tree dna recommended mtdna and the other
the autosomal. So now confused.

thank you
