A DNA test is a procedure to determine if exact biological characteristics exist in one person’s DNA and those exact same DNA characteristics in another person’s DNA makeup. As humans each of us have different DNA makeup, however parents and children have the same DNA, siblings from the same parents have the same DNA and grandparents have the same DNA as grandchildren. A DNA test is a non-intrusive procedure usually utilizing a oral swab from all parties, which then follows a specific chain of custody process in which the oral swab specimens are sent to a certified and accredited AABB laboratory.

Local Area Info: Algood, Tennessee

While Algood was not established until the late 19th century, in the early 19th century a small community developed just south of modern Algood at White Plains, an antebellum plantation and important stopover along the Walton Road (which connected Nashville and Knoxville). In the 1880s, the Nashville & Knoxville Railroad erected a depot at what is now Algood. The land on which the depot was built was purchased from a circuit rider and early settler named Joel Algood, and thus the train stop was named after him. For a period of time the area would be called Algood's Old Fields. In 1899, the Algood Methodist Church (now Algood United Methodist Church) was built on land donated by the children of this early settler. Algood was initially incorporated in 1901, but repealed its own charter two years later. The town reincorporated in 1911.

The town is situated at the base of Algood Mountain (el. 1,456 feet (444m)), one of a series of low, wide ridges in the area that present as "stair steps" from the Highland Rim to the Cumberland Plateau. Algood is centered along the former State Route 42 (Main Street), a state highway designation which no longer exists, just east of the road's two junctions with State Route 111.

As of the 2000 census, there were 2,942 people, 1,181 households, and 792 families residing in the town. The population density was 766.9 people per square mile (295.8/km). There were 1,263 housing units at an average density of 329.2 per square mile (127.0/km). The racial makeup of the town was 93.13% White, 4.93% African American, 0.07% Native American, 0.41% Asian, 0.24% from other races, and 1.22% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 1.09% of the population.
