I presume I am not the only one here who has had their DNA done. Has anyone else had any surprises? I reluctantly had mine done 12 months ago -- my wife can be very persuasive. Apart from the usual 4th to 6th cousins, and 2 second cousins I already knew about, I had a lady pop up as my nearest DNA Match as "Close Family" just before Christmas. Looking at the amount of DNA we share, she is my half-sister!! I have lived for 70 years as an only child so you can imagine the shock. But not as much of a shock as my sister who has lived for 73 years believing her father to be the man named on her birth certificate. It didn't take much research to make the connection through my father during his WW2 service in the RAF -- his record puts him in the right place at the right time. The first match from that family came from a niece -- my sister's daughter -- and she persuaded her mother to have hers done. My niece and I are in constant touch but her mother is having a terrible time coming to terms with it all. My niece and I are hoping to meet early this year, irrespective of whether her mother is ready for it. Just thought I'd share.
