My Biggest Ever Breakthrough in 20 years thanks to DNA

Post by chiddicks » Sun Jun 28, 2020 10:20 pm

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!!!!

Congratulations, chiddicks! I found a father for an adoptee in Australia through DNA. A very satisfying feeling.

Regards,
Anne
