Heinrich Schmidt and Mary Honaker had several descendants. Is there any way we can get DNA testing on a line other than Isaac?

As the way things stand right now this is not really the YDNA of Heinrich Schmidt husband of Mary Honaker. Its only the YDNA of the one who tested. 

If we find another descendant of Martin through a different line and its a match, then it confirms to Martin but still will not confirm to Heinrich. 

If we get to Heinrich and test a line other than Isaac and they are not a match then we will have to test more to confirm which line has the non paternal event.

As it stands right now we cannot call the YDNA of this one kit the DNA of Heinrich Schmidt until it is confirmed otherwise. 

If you need help in the funds or findind other direct male descendants to test please dont hesistate to ask for help.

I'm new to this site and not to familiar with how it works. The information that I have gathered leads me to believe that I am related to Henry Smith through his son Martin. Any info on what I should do next would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Richard Smith.

Hi Richard

WONDERFUL!!!! WE have, right now,one YDNA tester for the Heinrich Schmidt line. You can see, on the link that goes to Heinrich (a little tree icon) that, on the branches line, the person who has this line has a kit #, a pedigree and a direct line showing descent.  He does not have a Smith or Schmidt match yet. To test for you, you would want to also do a YDNA test via FamilyTreeDNA, which would create a baseline. YDNA tests go male to male. For example, looks like this for the YDNA member who has tested.  Since you believe you are from a different son, Martin, you would still be presumed to carry the YDNA line down from Henry/Heinrich. The second thing that is needed is a good tree line so we can list just how you descend from Henry/Henrich. You can send a lineage in to info@smithsworldwide.org.
