The following articles use DNA testing in determining the genealogical connections in the families studied:
- Daniela Moneta "Virginia Pughs and North Carolina Wests: A Genetic Link from Slavery in Kentucky," National Genealogical Society Quarterly vol.97, pp.179-194 (September 2009).
- Alvy Ray Smith, "The Probable Genetic Signature of Thomas1 Riggs: Immigrant to Gloucester, Massachusetts by 1658," The New England Historical and Genealogical Register, vol.164, pp.85-89(April 2010).
- Alvy Ray Smith, "The Probable Genetic Signature of Edward1 Riggs: Immigrant to Roxbury, Massachusetts, in 1633," The New England Historical and Genealogical Register, vol.164, pp.95-103(April 2010).
In his two articles, Dr Smith introduces his own method of showing genetic ancestry which does not follow any of the usual methods. While some like his method, I find it less informative that the standard marker site, marker value pairs used by the genetic genealogy community.
