Genealogy has been a passion since 1992. I love to connect with relatives and help others with their research.
More recently, I have developed an avid interest in utilizing DNA as a tool to prove familial relationships. I strongly encourage others who have tested to upload to GEDmatch as I have done (T498657).
Please feel free to message me if you believe we share ancestors or feel I might be able to help your research in some way.

It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Jana:
