Vickie, if your father is still living, he should take a test. But if not, you can take an autosomal DNA test, which will give her a breakdown on both mother and father’s sides back 5-7 generations. Additionally, if you have a living uncle (father’s brother), he could take the Y-DNA test to get good results. Hope this helps!
