Hi Elizabeth,
So good to see your name here again. Thanks for your kind words of encouragement as well which always help to keep me going on with the pursuit of genealogy for Everyone!
I Love it!
I Completely Understand your position on the exhumations and that is why I wrote that I knew this was probably touching on a sensitive subject for some. However, as I mentioned, since we were talking about two ancient ancestors going back to the 1600's, that was the reason we chose those two as no one would have an immediate family tie to either John or William Moody.
While the genealogy may state folks have a link to either one of those lines, the Genetics is showing that the two men as of today are Not at all related.
In an effort of clearing centuries old Possible Errors, we just felt this was perhaps the only or last resort to being able to Prove if John MOODY of Hartford, CT did indeed have the "G" HaploType from his Ydna and if William Moody of Newbury, MA did indeed have the "R1b" HaploType from his Ydna.
I know to some this must seem a barbaric way of going about it, and that is why this method will not be for everyone...but there will be some out there who would perhaps gladly group together to get something like this done in an effort to set the records and history straight at least back to their Immigrant Ancestors.
Thanks so much for your honest feelings on this and I completely understand and respect them.
Take care Elizabeth and as always my best to you in your own family research.
