Two Belgian 'Hitler-hunters' claim to have traced 39 relatives of the Fuhrer in Austria and the US.
Journalist Jean-Paul Mulders and historian Marc Vermeeren say that they pinned down on Hitler's kin by matching the DNA of the Nazi leader to discarded cigarette butts in an Austrian village, a used paper napkin from a New York restaurant, and letters sent from France three decades ago.
Mulders and Vermeeren claim to have tracked down Louis, Brian and Alexander Stuart-Houston in Long Island, New York, and say that the three brothers are great-grandsons of Hitler's father Alois.
They also say the brothers have taken an oath to never have children, and produce Hitler's progeny.ccording to the duo, more relatives of the Nazi leader live in Austria's Waldviertel region, which is near Braunau am Inn, where Hitler was born.
The Daily Express quoted Mulders as saying: "They live under new names which slightly differ from Hitler, such as Hietler, Hiedler or Huetler. Most of them probably don't know of their relationship."
