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!
Sometimes it is hard to visualize how many grandparents we have. This image shows how many. This does not include cousins!
My family tree has over 3000 people in it now. Slowly, I am making progress. Interesting: my maternal and paternal lines seem to share ancestors.
I received a DNA match from South Africa. Their family has been living there a long time. Hopefully, I will be able to figure out some of the brick walls (which are women) that I have in my tree.
I’ve been working on the maternal side of my family tree lately. I recently added 200 people to my tree. Genealogy requires patience.
I am blown away by what I am finding out about my family through DNA matches. I have family in places I would have sworn I didn’t.
Working on your family tree is a labor of love. When a DNA match comes in like this, it makes it triple worthwhile!
