Yes, I think age does make a difference....lots of folks are suspicious
about what happens to the sample...some for religious reasons don't want to
get involved....but when you finally figure out that the paper trail may not
be of much help...DNA is definitely the answer...

My cousin and his son were the only one's in our was now or
never...:) I didn't hestate to ask and he didn't hestate to supply....I did
pay for it...but since I asked him to do I figured I should....:) Oh, I do
have a couple of uncles left...but I figured the younger member of the
family would probably be more likely to do it....

Hello Katheryn ( K.H addad ); I approached my cousin (28 yrs.old ) through
his mother ,it took a while to even convince her ,to pass the message on ,&
that the DNA was not going to be used ,or was even able to be used ,for
anything other than genea. purposes . It was his wife, I believe, who
convinced him, because I offered Y & MtDNA tests, he did become curious
re his Dads background . It didnt hurt that I offered to pay ,either.! His
wife s response to that ," go for it " . I guess because they are much
younger than me ,it may have been a slightly easier sell. Just thought I d
add this to the debate. B.J.H. Toronto,Canada. .
