Hello Deanna and welcome to the Wikitree family, first thank you for recognizing Lothar. I was adopted and had my records opened and found my birth family in 2012. I used DNA to find my husband's birth father in 2015 from 3rd cousin matches, wasn't easy.
I wish you the best of luck in finding out about all your "new" ancestors and hope you find some joys from your discoveries!
VERY NICE WORK LOTHAR FOR HELPING HER !
