DNA? You don't have enough evidence of inbreeding already? Goins, Burns, Livesays and all the others around there are so interbred the only thing DNA can and will do is verify that people should have stopped breeding within their own families generations ago.(Inbreeding has been verified through CDC/HHS DNA analysis studies years ago in Hawkins/Hancock,etc.).
Instead, they continue the trend today and then ponder why there is so much physical and mental illness , deformity, premature death,etc.
Instead of gettin' sum from your mother, sister, etc. Try moving out of your "holler" and associate with people whose names and relatives are unfamiliar to you.
Granted, it might be harder to "score" when it's it not your "kin-folk", But, that's not what relatives are for.
