    Incredible story – thanks for sharing the link.

  2. Hiya James! It's become a special interest of mine since an older cousin “lost her dad” (long deceased) when she and the family did DNA tests for health reasons. The father she knew was Native American. Her test came out Ashkenazi Jewish. She has a theory on who that could've been. Amazed her mother never felt safe telling her the truth but for that generation it had a lot more repercussions.

    Amazing. In reality, so many families grow up with these secrets and people never know that they aren't who they thought. This DNA testing is digging up those old buried secrets – for better or for worse.
