Read some of my personal stories about what my wife and I have learned from DNA tests.
learned, for example, that the family rumours were true and that my
grandfather's father was not the man married to his mother. Nope, the
rumour that Great-Grandma had been messing around with the hired man
named Cooper turned out to be true! DNA connected my
mother and I with first cousins through the Cooper family.
We also were able to verify our paper research showing my wife's Native American heritage, and my black African-American ancestry. More secret recently came to light, and this was something no one had
any inkling of. Not a whisper, not a rumour, nothing - so it was a real
bombshell and has led us to interesting researching on my ancestor, a free man of colour from Pennsylvania who came to Upper Canada (Ontario) in 1818.
