Question from Elizabeth - Edwards family

Is there any information on the DNA for the Edwards Family? Richard Edwards is said to be the son of Henry Vlll. How can one do research on this?

I am administrator for EDWARDS Surname DNA Study group at Family Tree DNA. The question re Edwards descent from King Henry V111 may well be solved over time as more Edwards lines have their DNA tested. Complicated a little that both the Tudors and Edwards are of Welsh descent so may have earlier ancestral roots anyway. Also King Henry V11 has no surviving male descendants, legitimate ones at any rate. So Would need DNA tested of male descendants of King Henry V111 uncles or cousins etc, not sure if any tests been done on those lines yet.
