My first foray into genealogy began in 2010, during a Navy deployment, with my paternal grandfather's passing. Once that deployment ended, I ordered a DNA kit to make a connection with the side of my family that I only knew bits and pieces about, or at least I thought I did.
I'm still fairly new to all this, but a distant cousin that found me on my maternal side has been helpful in teaching me a bit more about researching lineage and finding records.
Have you taken a DNA test for genealogy? If so, login to add it. If not, see our friends at Ancestry DNA.
