ABOUT THE PRESENTATION
When three siblings did not receive any DNA from their supposed maternal grandfather, a systematic research plan traced the origin of the biological grandfather. Family oral histories, digital phasing, DNA testing of many extended family members and analysis of xDNA inheritance patterns were needed to find the real source of that missing DNA. It was from Donaghadee, Ireland rather than Prussia.
