Now, with new lots of distant cousins coming into play I have oodles of names to delve into, trying to find the connections. Seems everyone is from the USA lately [ 5th - 8th cousins]. Reading Colin's post recently https://genealogy-specialists.com/threads/you-cant-believe-everything-you-read-on-a-death-cert.9192/ made me wonder just how many people get on trying to find the Daddy or even the real Mother with all of the extra activies some people indulged in before moving on. How many little worlds were turned upside down when the results proved one thing instead of the other? Many difficulties ahead for some especially if 'parents' or older rellies had died & not left any clues as to parentage. A birth or any certificate is only as good as the info. offered for it. Hopefully this DNA happening can lead to good news for some who were adopted or otherwise separated from family as with children sent o'seas or merely adopted from orphanages or homes for unwed Mothers whether legally or not.
