  1. I am very interested in your discoveries. I was watching a You tube today and the speaker showed a sample of Albrecht Durers hair that has survived. Would the hair give us the dna information we need to help find his relatives living today?

    1. Dear Naomi,

      Yes I am aware of the hair lock in the museum. So far my research has indicated that dna can not be extracted from hair but I bet there’s some scientist out there who has a better idea. I’m counting on the fact that science will figure out a way for there are descendants of the Durers that then could be found. Who knows, it could be you 🙂

  2. Hello Dr. Garner, my internet search for info on a recent acquisition has lead me to you. I’m hoping you can share your impression of this metal plate I received from my grandmother’s estate. She traveled Sweden and Europe through the 30’s and 40’s . She also lived in Germany and France in the 60’s. I don’t know if that helps at all.
