DAVID AND JOHN.
May be now today, can do a DNA test to see how related you are to each other.
Do NOT know if you are still in search of family.
one web site has some who have tested, their results posted on www.familytreedna.com
am curious now which branch of SMITH's that might be related to the SMITH line of Joseph SMITH and Rachel ALFRED, their daughter
Rebecca married John MILLS B: of 1733 Sussex Co NJ and Grimsby ON CAN.
Their descendant did a DNA test and match on markers to my MILLS desendant. Still working on how or where they fit on 'our MILLS' tree.
Intermittently websites offer special rates on DNA testing.
the one web site I used in 2004 was www.familytreedna.com
and for my son
on his surname
in 2011 was www.ancestry.com
Still have NOT found a connection to the MILLS of Salem and Cumberland Co NJ to my MILLS of Essex and Morris and Sussex Co's.
