Re: I wish to hire a DNA analyst to interpret the results of a Big Y-700 FTDNA Sample #dna


Hi Jay,
Big Y is very unlikely to give you the answer that you seek. If you want to determine a possible surname, it's going to take paper trail research and potentially an autosomal DNA test. If the individual came in as Franklin according to records, my experience tells me someone came here before him and adopted that surname.

If DNA is of interest, I'd recommend a test at Ancestry and then upload to FTDNA, MyHeritage, and Gedmatch.

Hope that helps.
