Did Jesse James survive?

In 1995, the remains of Jesse James were exhumed. Through hair and bone samples from his grave, his DNA could be isolated and compared with the genetic profiles of his relatives living today. This also disproved various theories that he had not been shot by Bob Ford, a member of his gang.
Jesse James belonged to haplogroup T2 in the maternal line.

Discovering My Connection to Jesse James: A Review of iGENEA DNA Testing

My experience with iGENEA DNA testing was thoroughly professional and informative. The finding of a shared ancestry with Jesse James through detailed DNA analysis left me equally shocked and excited. This insightful journey sparked a newfound interest in genealogy. (E. Dauphinee)

Using the iGENEA DNA testing process was a unique and enlightening experience. Initially, I was slightly apprehensive about what to expect throughout the process, but their team was incredibly professional, offering directions and information at every stage. The process began with a cheek swab test, which was simple and painless. The testing kit was user-friendly, and the instructions were clear, which made the sampling procedure straightforward and hassle-free.

After taking the test, I sent the sample back to iGENEA and skeptically waited for my results, which are presented as a comprehensive report. Though they said it might take a few weeks, to my surprise, the results were delivered relatively quickly and in a professional way. When I received my DNA test results, I was utterly astonished to discover that I share common ancestors with the notorious outlaw, Jesse James.

Like any other person, I found the revelation that I was distantly related to a famous American western figure both shocking and rather thrilling. As a history enthusiast, my curiosity was piqued, prompting me to dive deeper into my ancestral history. I had no previous knowledge of this connection, and this discovery provided an entirely new perspective on my family history, sparking a newfound interest in genealogy.

The report provided by iGENEA was comprehensive and well-structured, showing lineage back several generations with surprisingly detailed accuracy. Their analysis not only outlined my genetic roots but also pointed me towards resources to continue my ancestry exploration. I appreciated how the information was broken down into layman terms to facilitate easy understanding of complex genetic concepts.

The service provided by iGENEA was truly enlightening and gave me invaluable insight into my ancestry, roots, and the fascinating fact of being connected to Jesse James. Overall, I would highly recommend iGENEA DNA testing to anyone interested in genetics or exploring their ancestral history. Their professionalism, efficiency, and conclusive findings are what makes them a commendable choice in DNA testing.
