Hi Marilyn....I've been tested, but so far I seem to be the only Lusk to do so. I'm not sure how helpful in your own genealogical work to have your DNA tested...if I understand the process correctly, you can only trace family near-term ancestry through the male line. Female DNA will tell you about very long-term ancestry...i.e. thousands of years. The male line can be used to find--or verify--ancestry going back in more recent time periods, like decades or centuries. Del Lusk
