Giles Moody / Mode ~1595 1667: my 9th g-grandfather

I have his wife's name, Jane Salmon, and that he drowned and when he was naturalized, etc., but it is farther down on the tree where things get confused. The Moody name follows through the family onto the Burt line from Virginia to the Carolinas and Alabama and into Texas. That's something to be taken up on the Burt Family Genealogy Forum, of course.

I'm curious about the DNA testing. Please excuse me if this is terribly uninformed, but I wonder how they can test DNA past a couple of generations since the scientific ability is barely 25 years old. Would a basic explanation be possible? I'd like to do it; I'm just perplexed. Thanks in advance.

This is my line from Giles:

Son of Giles Gyles
Elizabeth Moody (1665 - )
Daughter of JOSIAS (who married Richard Burt (1665-1745)

Son of Elizabeth
John Burt Sr. (1719 - 1752)
Son of Moody
JOHN Burt Jr. (1751 - 1820)
Son of John
JOHN Burt III (1776 - 1855)
Son of JOHN
RICHARD MOODY Burt (1828 - 1893)
Son of JOHN
JENNIE Alabama Burt (1857 - 1943) (married A.F. Childers)
Daughter of RICHARD MOODY
JOSEPH Absolam Childers (1891 - 1969)
Son of JENNIE Alabama
Frank VINCENT Childers (1915 - 1972)
Son of JOSEPH Absolam
I am Vincent's daughter
