The Persinger DNA project now has donations to pay at least half of the cost for "Y" chromosome testing of a descendant from Jacob Godfrey Persinger. Hoping to have some contributors for the rest of the cost and most importantly a Persinger man who has solid confirmation of his lineage back to Jacob Persinger, the man we call Godfrey due to the story he thought that was his surname when he was captured by Indians and later returned but adopted by the Persinger family. I'd like to also point out for all Persinger historical researchers that within 6 weeks we should have 67 marker test results on Peter Bertschinger, from near Zurich, Switzerland. - Allan Griffith, Bloomington, Illinois - magriffy@comcast.net
