      have no clue. I'm just the front person for promotion. I've always wanted a DNA test so I'm happy to give it. They have trained blood injector people. You could email them and ask them. Bye

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Brisbane is sponsoring the visit to Australia of the Molecular Genealogy Research Group (MGRG) of Brigham Young University, Utah, USA. The MGRG is in the process of constructing a genetic-genealogical database designed to be a valuable resource for world-wide genealogical investigation.

Individuals interested in participating are required to bring a completed four generation pedigree chart, must be willing to donate approximately 2 tablespoons of blood on the day and must be willing to complete a consent form for the study. The entire process will take around 15 minutes. Participant privacy and confidentiality is ensured throughout all aspects of the study.

      > Molecular Genealogy links individuals together in "family trees" based on the unique identification of genetic markers. The information encoded in the DNA of an individual and/or population is used to determine the relatedness of individuals, families, tribal groups and populations. Pedigrees based on genetic markers can reveal relationships not detectable in genealogies based only on names, written records, or oral traditions. A genetic identification is unique and can even discriminate between closely related individuals or those sharing the same name. The fact that DNA is inherited and that each individual is the product of his/her progenitors means that DNA can be used to not only create unique identifications, but also to identify members of the same family, clan or tribe.
