Dad and Mom



  1. I read your posts from time to time; they always give me something to think about. (Happy wedding anniversary to your father. My mother, too, suffered dementia.) But our most common link is that DNA debunked our family myth too — our maternal grandfather’s surname. DNA tests stripped it right away. Our DNA matched no known (insert surname) family in the data base. So — alias, adoption, illegitimate child? we will never know why our g.grandfather used this surname but the revelation brought our genealogy search on that line to a screeching halt. Take care.

  2. Interesting story re DNA. DNA updates become more refined as more people take the test. As Amish folk, it’s not surprising that your bloodline is not diverse.
