If you are a cousin and have not taken a DNA test please consider doing so. You can start with autosomal atDNA and/or take a yDNA test if you are male.
I am very interested in the Keller surname and anyone who is a male descendant of John Keller. http://www.worldfamilies.net/surnames/keller/
A couple of months ago a visitor to this blog asked me if I had taken any DNA Tests, well I have. I have taken an autosomal and mtDNA test. A sibling of mine has taken a yDNA 67 marker test.
If you have knowledge of a DNA test that is for any of the lines for the Goss Family (Spracklin, Goss, Keller, Delano) and I know they are out there. Please leave a comment so that others can benefit from your knowledge. Most are yDNA which follows the male line.
Here is what has been happening.
In the last year, I have taken an autosomal test through 23&Me
They have my ancestry as: 74.6% British & Irish, 8.5% French & German, .9% Scandinavian etc.
23&Me was using My Heritage for their family trees at this time. My Heritage is a paid site eventually. (Updated 11/26/2016)
I transferred the test at 23 & Me to Family Tree DNA.
I then took the mtDNA test (on sale) at Family Tree DNA and those results are now in:
My mtDNA Haplogroup is H3k1a. I did their full mtDNA sequence in March 2014. I keep getting emails that I have new matches. I also did their Family Finder (autosomal) in November of 2013. They give my Ancestry as 73% British Isles, 17% Western and Central Europe and 10% South Europe.
I also have a DNA test at Ancestry.com. dna.ancestry.com I have a tree but at the moment it is private.
Meanwhile I am reading: Beginners Guide to Genetic Genealogy by Kelly Wheaton: https://sites.google.com/site/wheatonsurname/beginners-guide-to-genetic-genealogy This is a free site and you can click and enjoy at your leisure.
Just this last month I purchased the book: The Family Tree Guide to DNA Testing and Genetic Genealogy, by Blaine T. Bettinger. It is very good but not cheap $29.99 so try various websites to see if you can’t get a discounted price. (Updated 11/26/2016)
My knowledge of DNA is getting better but I am moving slowly.
