Re: Y-DNA test opportunity for UK Pearses

In Reply to: Y-DNA test opportunity for UK Pearses by Kathy McClendon of 305

Hello Kathy,
My paternal grandfather, Bertram Kinleside Pearse, born London, migrated to Chile ca. 1890. He moved to Guatemala, Central America, where he resided for the resto of life. He and his Scots-Canadian wife Jennifer McNider had one daughter and two sons. I was born in Guatemala in 1942, the son of their youngest son, Edward Ashton Pearse. My father was sent off to Dunstable School (nr. London) at age 5. He returned to Guatemala in his mid 20's and in his mid thirties married my half English (Clayton) half Mexican (Palomeque) mother. My grandfather died when my father was 28, so I never knew him. I was in the UK for the first time ever 4 years and visited his old school. (I was amazed how popular the Ashton name is around that area, we always wondered where it had come from.) I'm writing asking if it is possible for those overseas Pearses to benefit from the DNA testing you offer and what part of my anatomy would be used (hair, fingernail, dried blood) that would be relatively easy to send.
Best wishes,
Edward Stanley Pearse Clayton (In Latin America we use both our parentís surnames.)
