DNA testing can sometimes provide new leads, help break down those annoying brick walls and connect you with cousins. With British India family history research people often hit a brick wall and suspect the cause might be that the ancestor is Indian. This can be hard to prove due to lack of documentary evidence, but the FIBIS DNA project could help confirm those suspicions.

DNA testing has helped me enormously with my family history research on my fathers mtDNA line bringing me back several generations further on my family tree and confirming he is descended from one of the Founding Mothers of Acadia.
