I agree with John German that DNA testing can provide
direction when the paper trails stop. It, therefore is a
new research tool of incomparable value, though it will
never be the answer to all of our questions.
In fact if Pence is on this list, I can show him a valuable
use of DNA testing in a Pence-related line, i.e. the descendants
of Mary Pence and John Nicholas Link of Augusta County, VA.
DNA testing could show the relationships, if any, between the
LINCK/LINK families of Baden and Hessen, Germany.
Should a relationship be proven, it would extend paper trails in
this country to existing documented lines in Germany, potentially
adding four centuries of family history.
I am new to this list, and as a genealogy buff and microbiologist,
it the MOST exciting list to which I have belonged.
