The father's "confirmed with DNA" relationship status indicator was removed because the DNA confirmation is not properly cited (DB error 213).

Please see this article for more information and guidance on how to provide the proper source documentation when confirming genealogy with DNA on WikiTree.

Thank you.

P.S., As it states in the Help for Confirmed with DNA:

"If there isn't a proper source citation the "Confirmed with DNA" relationship status should be removed (by you or another member)."
