There is a lot of information on DNA on this site. Click the tabs at the top for information. The FAQ tab will give you an overview of DNA testing. The Slagle project uses a “Y” DNA test, which only tests the DNA which is passed from father to son (Y chromosome). The DNA test will determine if there is a common male Slagle ancestor within the last 20 generations or so.
To see info on Slagles tested thus far, go to link below:
This link lists 20 Slagles that have been
tested thus far. I am the 17th
Slagle on the list (#14053). I descend
from a Jacob Slagle who was born around 1750 and died in December, 1800 in
There have been 20 Slagles tested to date. According to the DNA results, the 20 Slagles tested originate from 8 different families and my family doesn’t link to any of the other Slagles tested thus far.
If you are a male Slagle, we encourage you to get a DNA test and be added to the data base.

It is possible in the future that DNA tests may help narrow down the possibilities or even link Jacob dying in 1800 to a family.
Diane is stuck on her genealogy of Henry born 1765 who lived to 95 years. She agrees on DNA with 2-3 other testers.
to get Becky Kartalia’s son because she is not the male Slagle. Since this is a YDNA test, and the Y
chromosomes pass from male to male to male, any
Approximate % chance of being related based on DNA per my understanding:
25/25 55% chance of related within the last 8 generations
25/25 91% chance of related within the last 23 generations.
25/25 33% chance of related within the last 4 generations
22 or less match very probable not related
20/25 6% in last 24 generations

SNP – snap test – test to test halop
Can use same sample to do a test for 10 years.
Upgrade to 67 is $148
Can do thru pin #.
22 or less match out of 25 is remote chance of related in last 24 generations.

All the results are in for a 37-marker Y-DNA test for the
participant who is a nephew of A. Russell SLAGLE and descendent of Christoph
Friedrich SCHLEGEL, York Co. PA. He is a 35/37 and 36/37 match with
participants who are descended from John Christian SCHLEGEL. Most likely
John Christian is not a son of Christoph, but the common ancestor is probably a
