Origin of Michel Saindon : evidence by DNA
After more than 30 years of research, we have confirmed through DNA testing that Michel Saindon, baptized in Bains-sur-Oust in Brittany on 2 December 1715, is in fact the same person who emigrated to Acadia around 1735; the first ancestor of all Saindons in North America.
- A Comparison
The DNA profile of the Y chromosome in men of the same lineage is almost integrally transmitted from father to son.
It was therefore necessary to compare the DNA of a descendant of Michel Saindon in America with that of a descendant of Pierre, Michel’s brother, to confirm a common ancestor, their father, who had passed to them his unaltered chromosomes.
Initially we had to establish a solid base of comparison in America by collecting the DNA of three Saindons whose ancestry to Michel was certain. The genetic DNA markers of these persons was identical.
We then found a descendant of Pierre Saindon, brother of Michel, who agreed to submit to a test.
