“How would we estimate the date that the African-American ancestor entered our family tree?” asked Dorothy in her question to The Root. 23andMe geneticist Kasia Bryc answers here: http://23me.co/th6U1E
Tracing Your Roots: A white sister and brother have both found a small amount of African ancestry in DNA test results, and now they have questions.

CeCe, I transferred my autosomal DNA results to gedmatch.  On there I have some "unusual" hints of ancestry.... but like in this case, they were under 1%.  The website "warns" that anything under 1% is just "noise".  Wouldn't that be the case here?  Thanks.

(In my case Oceanic, and Subsaharan/Pygmy.  Showed up on gedmatch, but under 1%).  :)

Paul Fronzcak is not the only foundling for whom DNA has identified biological family. Kayla Tovo​'s incredible reunion story is featured on the front page of today's Orange County Register. http://www.ocregister.com/articles/tovo-670236-kayla-baby.html

this has been a big weekend for you +CeCe Moore and your team! Really nice and fascinating stories about good, methodical work, DNA and helping people find out their stories. Well done! I heard you at RootsTech 2015 and know about your work - very impressed with your professionalism and your enthusiasm.

Hello CeCe - just seen your picture - would have loved to be at the Conference. I have tested withc23 and me now at your suggestion. Hoping to go to Dublin in June - will meet Paddy Waldron again and see locations where my roots are. Keep doing the good job - you are helping many people! Anthea Ring ( UK ).

It is pretty tough filtering through distant cousins to find commonality.  It's like trying to fit puzzle pieces together.  I'm happy to read Kayla had success on 23 and Me.  I ended up choosing the competitors, because I found 23Me's subscription price a little harrowing.  Of course, I'm not in the same situation as Kayla - which is much more relevant for her knowing, perhaps her genetics, family medical history, etc. 
Thanks for posting another success story, Ce Ce!  So glad you can help people searching for answers to some very tough questions....

Finally, an answer for Paul Joseph​ Fronczak (Jack) thanks to my amazing DNA Detectives team's effort: Carol Isbister Rolnick​, Michelle Milledge Trostler​ and Allison Ramsey Demski​. He now knows his name, DOB and biological family. http://www.lasvegasnow.com/news/i-team-mans-identity-revealed-50-year-old-mystery-solved
A Nevada man who has been searching for his true identity finally has some answers.

Challenging story here, and with a missing twin sister as well.  I'm glad you were able to help him.

A couple of mistakes in there, but at least it gets the word out. I said she has a Finnish GREAT grandparent, not grandparent. Also I think her grandparents and/or great grandparents were the immigrants, probably not her parents. And hundreds of thousands in the databases, not tens as many of you  know. Good for visibility regardless. We need more testers from Lake Worth, Florida, so hopefully this will help!   #adoptee #DNA   #foundling   #genealogy

The other side of the story...The following is a guest post by Alice Plebuch demonstrating the potential of #DNA testing. When Alice first contacted me about two and a half years ago with the beginning of this incredible tale, I knew that the answer was just waiting to be discovered one day through genetic #genealogy . Many of you may have heard part of her family's story already, but I thought it only made sense for Alice to share it from the beginning through to its completion since it was her DNA test that started the unravelling of this mystery and her persistence that, finally, led to the resolution. (The final piece of evidence just arrived this week and, with it, the confirmation needed by Alice's #family to confirm the #babyswitch  and finally share their story.)

I loved this story. And now, I hope Alice has time to research her mother more so we can find the link between our maternal Irish families!

Due to the disagreements about the use of small segment data in genealogical research, I spent hours digging deep into multi-generational data to see what it tells us about the reliability of segments under 5 cM. http://www.yourgeneticgenealogist.com/2014/12/the-folly-of-using-small-segments-as.html
Responsible genealogists adhere to high standards of proof in their research, in the evidence that they present and in the conclusions they reach. I strongly believe that genetic genealogists should as well. When we make clai...
