This week marked the centennial celebration of the National Park Service (NPS). My family has a deep and abiding relationship with our National Parks, whom documentary filmmaker Ken Burns has called “America’s Best Idea.”
I am currently busy taking care of a new baby (YAY!) and taking a hopefully short hiatus from research (BOO!). Fellow family researcher, Alicia, agreed to do a guest post on her interesting story of how an AncestryDNA test helped to break down a wall of her biological father’s family and the new mysteries that have since unfolded. Please note, names have been changed as a courtesy to those living.
