In my opinion, I like the FTDNA Y-DNA test. There is a sale on now until the
end of August. The Y follows the male line. There is also a FamilyFinder test
that is sort of like the one on Ancestry, that will pickup cousins on both
On the Y, you can begin with a lower number, of markers and then increase (at
another sale!) to 67. I would do at least that many. Leonard

Subject: [LegacyUG] Question about DNA Tests
I had my DNA test done with Ancestry about a year ago.
In the meantime, my father and mother passed away.
The oldest member left in my fathers "McElroy" line is daddy's brother - my
Uncle. He is 83 years old.
I am thinking I should get him to do a DNA test. My question is: WHICH type
of DNA test should he get?
I am not that knowledgeable on the different types of DNA testing - but I do
recall that one test is more beneficial for tracking the male line of a family.
What test do you recommend??
