DNA test of Skanke descendants
The Skanke Association is investigating whether it is possible to create a Y-DNA profile for male descendants from Hackås in Jämtland.
A straight father line goes via Peder Jensson Skanke born about 1570 in Hof in Hackås in Jämtland.
Here we have received several samples that show: R1b - U106 - Z18 - Z372 - S6989 - Y30157:
If anyone has a proven straight male descendant line up to Old Karl in Hof, it is interesting to do a Y-DNA test.
Please contact us in that case.
Straight mother lines with test and FamilyFinder test are also welcome to join the project.
We have used FamilytreeDNA in Houston, Texas, USA for our Y-DNA tests.
A Y37 DNA test costs $ 169 or about SEK 1400. Sometimes a little less if it is a sale.

Financial support for more DNA tests is very welcome.
