  • 7 generations back

    what kit should i purchase to determine if my husband has one female Native American ancestor 7 generation back? The ancestor
    would be on his Mother's paternal side. If you use your chart, the
    ancestor would be labeled "the grandmother of MC".
    Thanks for your help.

    The DNAPrint will tell if your husband has NA ancestry, but without saying where it comes from. It will give you a percentage. And still, since we are talking about 7 generations ago, it may be diluted to a point that it may not even be there.
    Now... if your husband's mother was the one with direct famale ancestry to the NA (her mother'smother's mother's.....), than the mtDNA test will do it.
