Family Tree DNA Test
Mon Nov 26, 2012 04:48

My cousin Katherine(Gregg)Welser and myself went together to purchase a Family Tree DNA 37 marker test for her brother Al Gregg to sample for our ancestry. How long does it take to get results once the sample is sent to Texas? Does anyone think we might have results before Christmas? Al should be able to complete the test by December 1st or 2nd and have it in the mail. We're all excited to find out the results.

Word of mouth has it that our ancestors (Gregg or McGregor)were in the Ulster Plantation from Scotland in the earlier 1600's and then left there for Orange County, New York, in the early 1720's or so. Do we need to let Dr. Richard McGregor know that information for the Clan Gregor DNA Project? There is a question in the form for the test which asks where our ancestors were from. Word of mouth is the best we have at the moment since we cannot trace back to the Ulster Plantation or to Scotland with any complete assurance.
