If you ever see that sale again, please let the list know immediately,
certain there are several of us who would jump at the chance of the test.
When you mentioned it telling of the Crohns gene, really hit home for me, as
I have had the problem since 1971, took several years to learn there was a
gene for it. I haven't found anyone on my father's Shanks side who has had
it, that is my Scotch Irish, they came from Belfast in 1767 to Charleston,
S. Carolina for a land offering.
My husband has had his DNA done with the Family Tree dna with his Widener
list, but only told of his paternal lines. What you spoke of told so much
more than we have received from them.
Thanks for all of your help!!
