Katie | 37 | USA
When Katie was 13, she saw her birth certificate and asked her mother why her dad’s name wasn’t on there. Her mother finally told the truth, the man that was raising her was not her father. Katie searched for 15 years to find his identity. Through research only (later verified by DNA), Katie’s father was found and they now have a close relationship.
Frances | 63 | USA
Johnny | 38 | UK
Frances was born in 1960 in an unwed mother’s home outside of London, England. No father’s name was listed on her birth certificate and Frances was lied to about her father’s identity, even until the day her mother died. Through meticulous DNA research and combing through numerous records throughout the UK and USA, Frances was reunited with her siblings in the UK and her father’s identity was discovered (verified by DNA).
This study also helped identify another unknown parent, located in the UK. Johnny’s grandfather never knew the identity of his father. Through DNA research and knowledge, Johnny now knows that his great-grandfather’s identity is Frances’s grandfather. (This full story was published in The Scottish Genealogist September, 2022.)
