    Perhaps not so different, I too have questioned relatives only to be answered by either silence or by a range of emotions, the most common of which is fear. Are your family photo albums marked by missing photographs or scissor edited ones? After you questioned your people do you notice them grouping together and talking in hushed tones? What I have found is that no matter if a family secret is a big secret or a little secret, the family protects it the same way. They hide it away and don't talk about it. Period. The only one who can break that silence is the one that should. I agree that you have every right to know. But I also know that painful truths are slow to emerge and that family secrets are painful secrets. Look at the example of actor Jack Nicholson, he grew up never knowing that the woman he knew as his mother was actually his grandmother and the woman he knew as his sister was actually his mother.

    That is a great story. I think everyone should know where he or she comes from. It's unfortunate even in adoption cases that people are not allowed to know where they come from, or who their ancestors were.

    I see a lot of choices in tests. Does the MegaDNA do all the tests?

    Hope for the Abducted

    A wonderful story. But we still need more people to upgrade to the 25 or 37 marker tests because the 12 marker test can really only tell you who you are NOT related to.

    I understand you comment

    I understand your comment but you missed the point of the article. The growing number of DNA databases along with the wealth of information on the internet is opening up avenues of research never before possible. What it shows is a success, just not of the traditional type that you see on here. What I wanted people to see is that when you combine different research methods and sources, you can find out quite a bit of information, as in this case when the young man found his "anonymous" genetic father.

    Inded it is an amazing story but I'm not sure it really fits in the "DNA Success Stories" forum, well at least not from the anonymous donor perspective. jk

    Sperm donor found using FTDNA testing

    You really have to read this article. An enterprising 15 year old young man in England wanted to find out about his genetic father. His mother had been impregnated by an unknown sperm donor. Using his FTDna test, some basic research and some luck, he tracked down his "anonymous" genetic father.

    The article is really fascinating and shows how persistent and creative research using all available resources can find a lot.
