DNA Y-Chromosome Testing

This Phenomenal technology is the latest DNA tool for advanced genealogical efforts.  Male lineage can be identified using a simple mouth swab or forensic specimen.  The Y-Chromosome is paternally inherited and typically follows the family name.  Thus, if two distant male cousins are paternally related, their Y-chromosome will exhibit identical markers.
