Living DNA testing
Posted by Tim P. on 5/5/2017, 4:05:46
It appears that currently I can only join the Devon DNA Project if I get tested by FTDNA. However, I've just ordered a test kit from Living DNA, which provides more detailed geographic estimates, particularly for those with British ancestry (similar to the'People of the British Isles' study that was released in 2015). Their test also includes Y-chromosome, X-chromosome and mitochondrial testing, in addition to the autosomal DNA. Is it possible that the Devon DNA Project might accept test results from Living DNA at some point in the forseeable (sp?) future? I'd very much like to participate in the project, as I've been able to document my direct male line ancestry back to my 9xgreat-grandfather, who died in Cornworthy in 1580 (I have some evidence of who his father was, but it's difficult to be certain as the parish registers only survive from the early 1560s onwards). Thanks!
