Gee Rita, GenealogyWise has been so moribund for so long that I'd almost forgotten about it entirely. What I recommend for anyone interested in using DNA to determine for sure which particular surname patrilineage they descend from is to order the Family Tree DNA 37-marker Y-Chromosome test for a male who himself bears the surname of interest. It's necessary to test a male because only males carry the Y-Chromosome which gets passed down more or less unchanged in a particular surname patrilineage from father to son to son..., and I recommend testing at FTDNA because even the better of the two Y-Chromosome tests that Ancestry used to offer before they pulled the plug on Y-Chromosome testing some years ago (leaving all their customers in the lurch) falls short of being definitive in sorting people of the same surname into their various patrilineages. It is possible in some cases to make provisional patrilineage identifications from Ancestry results, but FTDNA offers tests of 37,67, or 111 markers that can also help sort descendants out into the particular surname patrilineage sub-branches that they belong to.

Because I'm not sure how fluent this GenealogyWise communications mechanism is, I'm going to email you directly with more details.
