Genealogy Question on DNA

Recommended Posts

I have read some reports that ancestral DNA results can only be found from hair only with the roots. 

I have a clipping (no roots known) of my mothers hair that could be 100 years old. Anyone have knowledge or results taken from hair clipping..

What firm or company does this. I have been told that maybe Heritage may have worked with hair but I didn't contact anyone. Now I have renewed interest as the hair is readily available.

Didn't know it was different for human.

It's not, really.  As the article I linked to states, hair sample without the roots can only be used to determine maternity, not for any other uses.
