    1. [ROBERT-REV-PIERRE] DNA sale! Our chance to sort out our Robert tree!!
    2. Cyndi
    3. Hi folks, We have been talking recently about defining our Robert/Roberts/Robarts family lines and I have good news! FamilyTreeDNA has just announced their summer sale for DNA testing. It's only good for a week but for anyone who has thought about testing, this is the time to buy a kit (you can store it if you need to work on finding an appropriate candidate)! The appropriate candidate is male and still carrying the surname (sorry, that's how Y-DNA works! we women can sponsor someone and manage the results, but we don't have Y-DNA). I highly recommend 67 markers--since this is a family study and all of our results will be similar--but one good thing about FTDNA is that they will store your DNA sample so you can start at a lower number of markers and add on when you can afford it (ie, the next sale which is usually around Christmas-time). I suggest we all get busy and find our candidate, then talk to family members to share in the funding. After all, when "Uncle Leo" is tested, his Robert results are true for everyone in the family! I'd really like to see descendants from each of Rev Pierre's sons tested--tho I'm not sure each has a male Robert/s descendent... The test is a simple cheek swab (no blood) and they send you everything you need. If you test, please provide your direct line to your earliest proven Robert ancestors...

    2. I think we in our group of Abraham III of Amite County, MS descendants have someone we can sponsor. How would we go about ordering a kit? And, it's the Y-DNA 67 kit that you recommend? We might wait for the Christmas sale so that we don't feel pressured to get our funds together this week. If our representative has had malaria, is that a problem for the results? Thanks!
