I am still trying to find direct male descendants of the HERRINGTON and
WIDEMAN families of Jefferson County that would be interested in DNA
testing. A new sale was announced today that lasts for 2 weeks for which
the cost for a 37 marker y-DNA test PLUS an mtDNA test is less than half the
normal price for both, and less than the normal 37 marker test alone. If
you are a male HERRINGTON or WIDEMAN (or you know of one) please contact me
