Please share your DNA stories with us!
We love it when people tell us about their DNA discoveries, success stories and even their ongoing challenges. They inspire us, and (when you give us permission to share them), they inspire others too. Here’s an example:
Carol recently wrote to Diahan to say, “You have been coaching me for several years on a brick wall. My grandfather had an unknown paternal line and you initially taught me to download and upload raw files, test family members, then how to compare and contrast match lists with known cousins.
Finally I hit another brick wall with a small group of potential male cousins. I attended your recent lecture in DC…and I came home re-inspired. Finally yesterday, after 25 years, we found him!! I now have a grandfather for my mother and a whole branch on what was once a lopsided family tree! I cannot thank you enough for being my cheerleader for several years and tolerating newbie questions.”
Yay, Carol! We love the PATIENCE and TENACITY she has shown in her family history research.
