DNA uncovers a 400 year old family secret!
I’ve been busy recently doing Case Studies and working on a Surnames and Y-DNA Map of Scotland (previewed here). But this Valentine Case Study is one of my all-time favourites and I’d like to share its results. It details a 400 year old family secret that was only uncovered as a result of a simple painless commercial ancestral DNA test. Over 400 years ago the test subject’s ancestor was a wanted man who needed to change his name and flee his homeland. The present family knew absolutely nothing about their connection to a famous battle and historical event! The full Y-DNA Case Study can be downloaded by clicking here. If you have any questions or would like a FREE CONSULTATION on your DNA results or you would like to know how to participate in ancestral DNA testing then contact me here.
