The story of researching two successive generations of patrilineal illegitimacy to identify the hitherto unknown fathers and my “true” surname. This account involves a 25-year research odyssey and uses family oral history (and misinformation), all the usual and some not-so-usual documents, the patient advice of the late Ryan Taylor, a remarkable but puzzling Y-DNA test, and the power of autosomal DNA testing and segment matching.
The meeting starts at 7:30 pm at Eglinton St George's United Church, 35 Lytton Blvd, Toronto. Unfortunately it will not be live steamed.
There is also a mini-presentation by Ann Brown & Beth Adams: Indomitable Granny Brown/Auntie Belle
