This is the 20th anniv. of home DNA testing for ancestry purposes! 20 years ago this mo, @FamilyTreeDNA sent out its first test kit. The testing was v diff, but the industry (cos like @23andMe, @Ancestry and @MyHeritage) traces back to this moment 2 decades ago. #DNAtesting20

My husband has been reading the war diaries of his great-uncle’s regiment and has finally found out the details of how the man our eldest is named after died, aged just 28. #thread #ww2 #familyhistory #militaryhistory 1/11
He was a pilot in the Air Observation Post, based on Italy during 1944 and flying a tiny Auster aircraft - lightweight and highly manoeuvrable but with little to no protection. 2/11
On 10th June 1944 he was flying ahead of the lines prior to the allied advance on Chieti, spotting enemy tanks/troops. Whether he was shot or something failed in his aircraft is unknown but he hit the side of the main cathedral tower. 3/11
