Hello. I am considering joining the DNA projects for two of my lines, but the problem is that I am female, and I have two daughters. My father has passed, and so has my only sibling (a brother) who completely shares my DNA and family lines. I do have some rather distant male relatives from each of the lines, but I don't know them well and they are not involved or interested in my research, it seems.
I realize that the DNA testing is being done primarily via cheek swab, but I've been wondering about something. There is a good clump of my deceased brother's hair (from his first haircut) pressed in between two pages of his baby book. The hair has been there for 48 years, undisturbed. Might it be possible for the DNA testing to be done using this hair sample? If so, can anyone point me in the right direction to try to have this done?
