I understand the difficulties in tracing DNA through the female lines but isn't anyone giving the idea some thought ?
I should think a big enough database would allow us to track down some of those elusive no-surname females in our trees.
Maybe being female gives me a bit more interest in the distaff DNA but I just don't see one as being any more important than the other in genaelogy.
Anyone else have any thoughts on this ?
b. not of much genealogical use--you might be lucky, but more than likely any matches you get are only going to tell you that you are related within 25 generations.
As time passes, and more people get tested, it may become possible to link families through the female line more easily. Remember, one of the problems of making a match significant is knowing it is a close match. If neither party has been able to trace the female ancestor more than two or three generations, getting a match that is even five generations back doesn't help, because you can't jump intervening generations. I am linked to hundreds of men and women around the world, but I am no closer to knowing how I am related to them today than I was before I was tested. They all have Northern European ancestry and so do I.

At least if I recall correctly.
