Hello Ken

A lot of little family history one-name societies use their funds
to pay for testing of society members - and the Brooking Society
has done this over the last couple of years.
(see www.brookingsociety.org.uk if your wish)

But overall I would say - do not be tempting to go 'fishing' for results
hoping to catch something. Use DNA testing to support your
research and plan carefully who you test. There is little point in
testing people who are already known to be closely related to
each other.

Do you want to discuss more in public or private ?

Ian
