what test is a good place to start?
A Y37, family finder or other??


I have a pretty good paper trail of my father's line, (ROBBINS), back to 1824, where I loose it.
(my GG grandfather)
In my family tree search, I have found references from different relatives as to where they immigrated from. (Scottish, German).

On my Mother's side, they have kept outstanding records going back to the early 1700's. So, I have been focusing on my father's side more.

Will a Y test help with the ROBBINS side heritage question & would it help to continue my line prior to 1824 ?

Or, as a co-worker suggested, should  do the Autosomal DNA test?

Thank you,

Yes, a FTDNA test on a male Robbins relative will bring some answers to you, I'd say. It worked for me, anyway. Where is your Robbins line from in 1824?

I have 2 reports...
One, said Niagara area of New York (could even be Canada side..???)

Secound, said New Jersey area...which I tend to believe more as my GG-grandmother was born in Essex, New Jersey, and still has family there.

And, thank you, I will follow up with the FTDNA Y-37 to start see where I go from there.

Larry, if you get the test, and you are a direct descendant of a male Robbins, (if your last name is Robbins) then please join the Robbins surname study at:
