Oh, Cousin – Where Art Thou?


My current focus is on finding cousins via DNA matches. I’m still waiting for results from my test, but there are lots of matches from my 23andMe and My Heritage tests.

I got all excited when I learned about DNA Painter.  I downloaded match information and painted it. It’s a very colorful DNA map. But I also created a problem for myself and now I’m having to backtrack a little.

Problem: I failed to finish the research to add some of them to my family tree. I am a “big picture” person who sometimes tends to gloss over the details. That almost always causes problems, but the details are not the fun part.

So now my task is to summon some self-discipline to bring my tree up to date. Self-discipline isn’t the fun part either
