Females have only an X chromosone. Men have an X and a Y chromosone. The Y chromosone changes very slowly and in a predictable manner. Your sons have exactly the same yDNA as your husband - and of course, no Hosch yDNA. Your mitochondrial DNA is exactly the same as your mothers, and her mother as females have mitchondrial DNA and males don't. However, this test would als not encompass your Hosch ancestors. Without any Hosch brothers or uncles, your only hope would be to find a second or third Hosch cousin. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
