Would you consider a DNA test to help with your research and with ours?
There is a group that was formed to study Ayer/Ayers DNA. Although it was originally intended to study those in the southern states, data has shown that many of the northern Ayer/Ayers went south. In addition there has been some accumulation of New England data.
The testing methods used and the collection of samples insures that the data cannot be used except for genealogy purposes.
Please contact me direct, Willisb199@aol.com
, if you are interested in greater details of the test. I also have some data on your family accumulated during my many years of interest in the genealogy of the Ayer family. I am willing to share that information.
Happy hunting, Willis
