[Thread] Like many of you, I fumbled my way into #GeneticGenealogy which uses DNA testing in combination with traditional genealogical and historical records to unlock hidden connections & answer questions. It's what helped answer this question: who was my 2nd great grandfather?
My great grandmother on my paternal side was Dora Cloud (1890-1975) and she was an Estelvste - an African Native American - of the Creek tribe. Here she is visiting her mother's grave with my wee grandfather is tow (look at her knees).
Dora was a mixture of two sparsely documented groups from an area - the Indian Territories - that didn't keep the best records. Raised by a single mother who passed way too early, the only record of her father was on the Dawes Final Rolls: John Whistler.

Thread: (#Ancestry #DNA #PeopleAreNotSecrets #2019vs2018)

As we're heading into the holidays and we recently had a fit of family birthdays, I find it interesting people are already reviewing 2019 before it's over. It's also interesting how many people
Believe the current year was worse than the previous, even when they said the same thing the previous year. In general each person marks each year in relation to their own life. 2019 wasn't as positive as 2018 was but each were better than 2017.
In 2017 I had a difficult work load, a back injury and the loss of my adoptive mother who was the last of my adopted family. In summary it was pretty negative except for a Black Friday sale on @Ancestry DNA tests that changed my life.
