Daughter Out

Yesterday on The Georgia Genealogical Society Webinar  “Make Your Ancestry Come Alive Using Your DNA” Peter J. Roberts, the presenter, used the term “Daughter Out.”

I was unfamiliar with this term that describes a male ancestral line that ends because only daughters are born to a couple. My mother’s Duncan  line has daughtered out because there were only five girls in her family.

I found a discussion on “Daughtering Out” on this website.
