Hello! I just transferred over my info from Ancestry.com; I am awaiting DNA results that I sent in on Dec. 1st. Estimated date of results: Jan 6th LOL.
My interest in geneology has to do with medical information. My two children both have hypermobile ehler-danlos with significant physical and mental manifestations. That is an autosomal dominant inherited connective tissue disorder. The heredity in hindsight traces through me and my mother, although we both have mild symptoms that never amounted to a diagnosis, just a lot of random unrelated treatments for conditions they couldn’t link to anything.
To make things more complicated my mother was adopted, so our disorder history ends there. I would like to know who her father is so I can rule out cadiovascular ehlers-danlos, which is much more severe. Plus it’s just so interesting!
So that is alot, but I wanted to reach out. I spend at least an hour a day researching. I have not figured out how this site works, so it’s a little slow going on this end right now! Hopefully I can be more involved once I know how to properly do things here.
I live in Iowa, I work full time as an accountant, I am married with two kids aged 15 and 12.
