My name is Susan McEwen (nee Yake) and I am a descendant of Jacob Yake (my grandfather was Marshall). I recently participated in the genotype project through National Geographic. Unfortunately, since I am female, I cannot trace my father's line (no "Y" chromosome). I also do not have any brothers, living uncles and my father passed away.
Are there any males that are direct descendents of Jacob Yake that would consent to a DNA swab of their inner cheek to trace the family line back centuries? If so, I am happy to pay for the process.
Just as a point of interest, I have found Yakes as far away as Khazikstan and Mongolia.
