    Both sides of my family are adoptees, so this has been a tough road for me. This is my first success.
    If any adoptees need assistance with searches let me know and I will provide you with the names of online search and reunion resources that are FREE, and very helpful to those searching (birth family or adoptees). The sites where I am a member have wonderful "search angels" who will help, and they do not charge anything.

    Zaru, that is great! I am an adoptee so I know how it feels to receive new information that could lead to more knowledge about your ancestry. As a female, I don't have Y-DNA testing available to me so be thankful you can!

    Best wishes for continued success.

In African American history we know that surnames can only be used as secondary tools, but with the DNA tests, we can achieve greater results.

    I have contacted the gentleman and hopefully soon we'll get a response. We do not have the same surname but I am not overly concerned with that now. I am still waiting for our third panel returns, but our match has only 25 markers tested. Hopefully he will upgrade...
