Success story

After 18 months of DNA testing we found our Grandsons father.

We had no name, no age. The only way the father was found was by DNA. This happened because of a third cousin match which was one name I recognized. This led to other family members testing and this led to the Grandmother being found then the paternal father. It took seven DNA tests

Very happy to read of this, since I face a similar problem with my own son's maternal grandfather. It gives me hope.
