Re: DNA test for Halifax VA LOFTIS' to connect to other LOFTIS'

I had my brother's dna tested for both paternal and maternal information. I used ancestry.com to test for 46 markers [http://dna.ancestry.com/buyKitGoals.aspx]. However, family tree [http://www.familytreedna.com/] also provides for tests and their results can be uploaded onto a site called Ysearch [www.ysearch.org].
I have my brother's dna results on that site as well.

If you can trace back to Job you may be the link I have been looking for over the last decade. It is not necessarily cheap, but it does provide more documentation of line connection and verification than the very oldest census records.

Thank you for your interest. I would hope to have more that would give us a better comparison.
