Identifying my ancester through DNA
« on: Sunday 09 December 18 12:29 GMT (UK) »
My 3 x Great grandmother had 6 children.  They all seem to have been born out of wedlock (base born as the parish register has it). Whether they were to the same or different fathers is not known. My question is: is it likely that with advances in DNA testing and analysis that I am ever going to be able to identify my 3 X Great grandfather?
