Do you need Texas- DNA?

Hi Joe! Thanks for the invite. I guess you might say I've been bitten by the genealogy bug (I may have spent over 24 hours last week researching on the computer lol). I was a little shocked when reading the forum that I'm in the unconnected Mapes line but this may just make the hunt more intresting. I saw you were trying to do a DNA connection for the unconnected Mapes line. Are you still needing male DNA from my line? If you are you're in luck I'm sure my dad "Jimmy" James Madison Mapes b.1942 would participate. And then there is my Grandfather Royce Harrison Mapes b.1918 who is still living in Ballinger, TX.- He may take some convincing though. I was wondering is stubbornness, poker playing, and drinking a trait common of The Thomas Mapes line?-Cause if it is we are defiantly related lol. My Papaw's father was "Harry" James Harrison Mapes b.1894 and grandfather was "Lon" Joel Alonzo Mapes b.1861. Let me know what we should do to begin the testing. I'm very curious.
Im sorry to say my Papaw Royce doesn't know much about his ancestry. I do know his grandfather was a cowboy and when I was younger I was told we were from NY and we were German but that may have been on a great grandmothers side. I know the older Mapes in Ballinger, Tx. were Catholic. Well that's just a little information I have. Let me know if I can help in any way.
Jami "Mapes" Hernandez
