  • With surname research underway, what about others?

    My paternal grandmother's surname was Knie. There's a family tradition that my Knie line is related to the family of the famous Knie Circus of Europe. This is not my own surname. Is there any test I can take to help this research along? I would assume it would require one of the European Knies to also take the test (I don't have any pull there!).

    Tests will only support or disprove relationships along the male or female lines (Y-DNA or mtDNA tests).

    Family members outside these two lines are unable to contribute to their research. For example, my Y-DNA can tell me absolutely nothing about my mother's line and my mtDNA can tell me absolutely nothing about my father's line.
