A long overdue family tree update.
I've been working with DNA matches more than adding people to the family tree. I'm starting to notice patterns within family lines!
This weekend was one of those frustrating ones when technology kills your vibe. Let's look at how my family tree is progressing.
The theme of this update: nothing matches. I'm making process but there is a lot of inaccurate information out there.
Progress update on the family tree. I made progress! It feels good when I can properly place newly found relatives on the family tree.
Ancestry updated the algorithm behind their AncestryDNA test that calculates the ethnicity estimate. From comments I see many lost their Italian ethnicity estimate. For me? Hahahaha!!!
Working on a family tree is a labor of love. It requires patience. Today, my patience paid off. I know who my paternal grandfather is!
My progress on the family tree. I have more DNA to work with. Yay!!
I found out for sure, I am part Chinese. Paper is matching science. I also found out my ancestors were Chinese Jamaicans. And...I found out some of my ancestors were born into slavery but set free. This has been an emotional week for me.
More progress on the family tree. This time I DNA confirmed a family line to the 1830s!
