Thanks for the reply. In theory there should be a marker or two that has developed since the days of John Crandall in the 1600s that should distinguish various subsequent branches of the Crandall family. The complication is that a DNA test may expose any undocumented adoptions or liaisons that occurred sometime in the last 400 years. It may also establish a link to any relatives who remained in England or migrated to Australia. So the more Crandalls of various branches who take the test, the more clearly such things can be resolved.
