ANCESTRY.COM DNA TESTING

Lloyd and Lucy Nance Croft have had autosomal DNA testing with Ancestry.com. Autosomal DNA tests give clues to personal ancestral history on a broad scale (more so than mtDNA or Y-DNA testing). The results of the testing give a general breakdown of the geographical origins of a person’s ancestors and those tested are also able to make connections with others who share their ancestry.

Both Lloyd and Lucy had hopes the DNA testing would help break down the Croft and Nance “brick walls.” Unfortunately, that had not yet happened, but as more people are tested, one of these days that may occur. Each has made connections with other “cousins” but none of them have information on their family trees shedding light on the Croft and Nance “brick walls” – Daniel R. Croft and Edward H. Nance.
