I want to know if Henry Haynes (1701-1782), or Jasper Haynes (1715-1782) of Bedford County, VA are indeed brothers of my ancestor, William Haynes (1710-1781). DNA can be used to answer this issue when male Haynes of those lines get tested.
I want to know if our Colonial Virginia Haynes are related to the distinguished John Haynes (1594-1653), first Governor of Connecticut, and co-author of its constitution.
Is our Haynes line is related to those "other" Haynes: HANES, HAINES, HAINS, etc.
What do you want to know ... ?
have the opportunity to answer those questions using DNA testing.
Not in the future, but NOW...

It was founded by a fellow genealogist when his own paper trail ran dry. The site explains how DNA can help with your family history, how the technology works, and how you can join the growing list of HAYNES family researchers using DNA in their work.|
An on-line video explains how DNA was used to prove that the family of Sally Hemings was indeed fathered by Thomas Jefferson or his brother.
