My Mother is a Langlais from Cohoes,N.Y by way of Riviere du Loup and Louis Phillpe Langlais dit Serien. The y-dna has me baffled ? Bill Simmons firstname.lastname@example.org
Penny, I am thinking my Langlais line was a capture during the sacking of the Fort at Pemaquid, Maine in 1696, time frame fits ? Have you found anything yet ? My family is a match with your line also.
I agree Bill!!
My Mother was a Langlais from WI and we have things traced back to the the Maine branch of Sargent or Mass. Is it possible for me to have DNA ran of myself to see what state we connect to? we always thought we descended from Louis Phillip but it is way up in the air now. I could not use the Y as my ties as a male would have to go through my Mother.
No Brian, the Y DNA is only passed down on the father's side, not the mother's. Does she have a brother?
Yes. One left living. I will ask if he would be willing. What place provides the best DNA testing?
Many of the people in the Sargent DNA Project (including myself) used FTDNA
The 37 marker test is all you need. It's $169, but you can wait for a sale, possibly December, when the price comes down to $130, or so. No blood is needed, just a cheek swab. Put yourself on their e-mail list so they will notify you of sale prices.
Thank you Keith!
