A long overdue family tree update.
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.
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!
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.
