DNA from a hair

  1. We have hair of Elizabeth Montgomery
    • DNA test it.
    • It is cut off (no roots). So can only do mtDNA testing.
    • - DNA testing from envelopes, stamps, hair, and more.
    • Female-female (mtDNA) line of Elizabeth Montgomery leads up to Anne Vassal, born c.1700 (French or Greek). And then will match with female-line descendants of her, with many different surnames. Will be very hard to make sense of results.
    • Note: Elizabeth Montgomery is already DNA proven to be dau of Susan Maltass.
    • Conclusion: Expensive test for probably no real payout.
