Amazing Things I discovered About My Family
By Steven Skelley
I had been thinking about ordering an AncestryDNA kit for a long time so I was very excited when I got the opportunity to review one.
Since both of my parents and both sets of my grandparents are deceased, I have no one to ask about our family history. I have often looked through old family photos and wondered, “Who is that?”
My husband and I have helped several elderly people turn their family memories into books their families can cherish. I value family and heritage.
I received my AncestryDNA kit, collected my sample, mailed it back and soon got my reply.
I immediately learned where my family originated and spread.
Using my new Ancestry information, I began using Ancestry.com and other geneology websites to search for clues.
Here is what I discovered:
* My great, great, great, great, great, great maternal grandfather Samuel fought for independence in the American Revolution. I also found a photo of Samuel’s grave with a marker designating his service in the American Revolution.
* On my father’s side, my great, great grandfather fought in the American Civil War. He was injured in the Battle of Murfeeesboro in 1862. He was captured. I even found a photo of him using crutches to stand.
My ancestry search was greatly aided by Ancestry.com and their AncestryDNA kit. They provided me with facts and verification I wouldn’t have discovered anywhere else and they put me on the path to discover family trees and historic photographs I might not have found on my own.
