Does anyone know how DNA evidence has been used on SAR applications? As supportive evidence? To prove a line? (But then how?) I cannot find anything on their website or googling.
I also cannot figure how it might be anything but circumstantial (thus why all the fuss). I understand many lineage problems involve distinguishing cousins or parents from sons . . . and, from what I understand, yDNA will not help that. Oh, but a combination of yDNA and mtDNA would distinguish cousins, no? Unless brothers married sisters, or something like that.
