June 11, 2019 Reply Hilda Cannady She looks black June 11, 2019 Reply Precious 1962 I took the Ancestry DNA test a couple of years ago, and it came back that my deceased father wasn't my Dad. I wasn't shocked. See, from the time I was a little girl, when my father got drunken, his exact words would be, ”Baby, ain't none of y'all kids mine, except Lisa (the oldest).” He would then commence to tell us the first name of each of our 8 fathers. We never knew if he was telling the truth or the alcohol was talking. Well, in my case it was true. I have 2 deceased sybling’s and the other 5 are not interested in knowing. I probably wouldn't have taken the test if I felt it was true what my Daddy was saying. My Mom died when I was 8 and my Dad died in 2006. He is the only Dad (in and out of our lives) I ever knew. It was no big deal to me.

Your dad that raised you gave you what we all want — Love. In addition, you said he taught you good work ethic which is worth its weight in gold. Parents aren't without blemishes. Think of all the good you had in your childhood up into your adult years and stay with those fond memories.

Are you out of your journalistic mind using a word like that when you see she’s crying? July 21, 2019 Reply Nelson Network I can feel her amazement and pain and confusion… I did two DNA home kit testings, CRI Genetics & MyHeritage.com. I just want to not rely on just one finding, I wanted to compare two to see of any inconsistencies. There were a few, most overall both were telling me the same thing, that my Father wasn't my biological Father either. It's gets more interesting… in 2002, I consorted with a local radio guest Psychic. DIdn't ask her about love & finances, but simply; 'Are my Parents my real Parents?' It stumped her but she was excited to receive the vision to help me answer this. So she came back, told me my Mother is my real mother, we're very much alike. But as for my father, she couldn't get a clear vision, it was a gray area blocked by a legal proceeding that I was too young to remember. Interesting. So when I was back home in 2003, I confronted my Parents. My Mom got extremely upset. Defensive? Family secret? But my Father's response was classic, which also fueled my confusion more… 'As fas i know I am.' Okay, either you know, or you don't! How can you be so vague? Well, I understood it more when my Mom dropped a family secret bombshell on me one day a few years later. Her mother, was not her biological mother. It was her Grandmother. But her father was still her father. Hmm… I know right?! Wow! So back to my results, my region wasn't what I thought it was going to me according to my Parent's family's origins. I was mostly Northern European, Scottish, English, Welch, Irish. On MyHeritage, it gives you matching relatives ranging from 2nd to 3rd to 5th cousins, once, twice removed. So 80-90% of those relatives favored my Mother's Father. I mean, he's my Grandfather, there would be some, right? But I should favor more of my Parents. My mother's new discovery enlightened her to know she's 50% Italian (even a famous Crime Family) and mixed from her father. So I should lean towards my Mother's, right? Lesser percentages… nope, higher leaning towards me feeling that my Grandfather had his way with my Mom, he was an unusual drunk, and I was the next family secret. Now, my Dad may not actually know, but if the Psychic was right, if there was a legal proceeding, like birthrights, then he would know! And both of them would have lied to me to my face. People can lie, DNA doesn't. But this discovery could explain a lot of what's currently going on with my immediate family. My mother and I had a major falling out, like me being kicked out of my own apartment & her still living in it! I feel if this is true, then I could be a constant reminder of what happened to her back then. See we hadn't lived together since I was a teen, before the divorce. It was always daily visits or phone calls. Now on my Father's side, I had a falling out with them back in 2003. I am civil and in touch with my father, but now that I'm living back in my hometown, not just visiting, he still only sees me twice a year, my birthday and Christmas. I am the 'Blacksheep' of the family, guess someone has to be, huh? But this could also support his resistance, that if he actually knows this as well, then it also would explain how he treated me throughout my life. Not abusive, but resistant. I always felt out of place, even as a kid. So it's amazing I felt something way back then… but I'm 53 now, ex-Navy, disabled, love my children, have been single for over 15 yrs, finally accepting who I really am… a Nelson, not a Fatur. Don't get me wrong, Richard, the man who raised me, did so the best he could and I'm grateful for everything that was provided for me. That will never change, like my Mom stated after her discovery from her Uncle on his deathbed, 'All the players are gone, so what does it matter?' Well, my supposed Father is dead, since 1985, but my Mom is still alive, and I don't think she'll share this with me, maybe on her deathbed, but I'm not holding my breath! It's just now, from what I discovered on my own, what do I do with it? Still deciding… July 22, 2019 Reply Yvonne Bales I don’t care July 22, 2019 Reply Sophie Deveraux this whole show is absurd. its just paternity fraud. happens all the time when men marry trashy women who are not noble virgins and young ladies. before a potential father sings a birth certificate there should be a mandatory paternity test by law.
