Hello, My name is Nellie Moore and I am tracing the Davino Davignon family tree looking for my ancestors on my paternal side. My fathers father. In particular I'd like to compare my Ancestry DNA with anyone else in the Davino line to see where and how we match. My Gedmatch is A562038 and I have loaded it here to WikiTree. Thank you!
