Re: Lancaster in Maine--DNA Test Needed

A lot of that is "greek" to me. But I am interested in doing a test although I have to wait until I have the extra money to afford it.

I would like to know if the information gained from the test will give information that can benefit other family lines. For instance, there is a controversy regarding the ancestry of the "Bearse" line and if Augustine Bearse was married to Mary Hyanno who is of native american descent. They are trying to determine whether Bearse is Romanian and if he was married to a native american or another Mary who was English. I am related to this line as well. Can getting a test provide information that can be used in more than one line or do you have to do a test for each family?
