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.
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.
Working on your family tree is a labor of love. When a DNA match comes in like this, it makes it triple worthwhile!
I label all of my DNA matches. I’m glad I take the time to do that because it allows me to spot instances like this: when family lines cross.
I cannot put into words how happy it makes me when I receive a new AncestryDNA match and I already know, approximately, where their place on the tree is.
