Autosomal DNA testing:


I myself am a descendant of Sarah Eliza McNutt and am tested at 23andme.

My father Richard Monette is also a descendant of Sarah Eliza McNutt and is tested at 23andMe.

My paternal grandmother Jean Mulligan is also a descendant of Sarah Eliza McNutt and is tested at 23andMe.

I would be interested in hearing from other descendants of Sarah Eliza McNutt who have tested autosomal DNA at 23andMe or FTDNA.

If you haven't tested yet, but would like to know more, you can read my post about autosomal testing for genealogy HERE
