I’ve been interested in genealogy for decades, as an adopted child, it was something that would constantly be at the back of my mind. I trained as a journalist but as my side hobby I started writing and researching DNA. As a result of using DNA testing kits, I found my half brother and then a further two half-siblings. I now have an more extended family than I could have imagined and I spend my time with them and my dogs, sometimes catching a ball game. with any comments and suggestions.
