Dear Shirley

You live in Montreal, within easy reach of several fine hospitals. At
least one of these is a RESEARCH AND TEACHING hospital capable of giving
you authentic answers to your questions.

Please share with us what you find out!

Warm regards

Dear Group Members:
My father died with no direct line male survivors. I have a lock of his
hair >from his childhood. Could it be possible to test a hair sample of my
late father to trace his Y chrosomome and mitDNA? Could these genetic
markers then be entered into the Jewish database for matching relatives?
Where would such a test be performed, and what would it cost?
Thank you,

Shirley Pencer
