My Biggest ever Breakthrough in 20 years thanks to DNA

Post by chiddicks »

This week I made my biggest ever breakthrough on my tree, when I managed to solve a 20 year brickwall, thanks to the powers of DNA. For 20 years I have had one 'missing' great great grandfather.

Of my 16 great great grandparents, one has always been listed as 'unknown father', well not anymore!!!!!

If I said it was like looking for a needle in a haystack, well before, I didn't even know which haystack to even look in!!!!

Congrats! My great grandfather wasn't unknown, but he did give false information on who his parents were and where he was born. This gives me hope to find his parents one day. So far I've only narrowed it down to a location.
