Been busy the last few days doing genealogy, my own and a relatives. I was very excited to be able to fill in the missing pieces for my relative who was given for adoption in 1931. I found his connection and most likely his birth mother. I was glad to do it. I know what it feels like to not know and I know the completion I felt in knowing who and where I came from. It was tiring work, but so worth it.
I have been working on connections with my DNA results to confirm my family tree and the people I’ve found that are my ancestors. I can say that at least 4 of my lines have been confirmed and most likely a 5th. I feel gratified. I still have 3 people that I need to connect and a certain name Smith keeps popping up. Don’t know where from?
Family, those that were and those that are present now; it’s a wonderful thing.
