Theme Reveal

Image 19-3-18 at 10.27 pm

You have all seen those Ancestry DNA advertisements haven’t you?  Connect with relatives! Meet a distant cousin!  Discover your ethnicity!

I found out a bit more than I expected.  It rocked my whole world and my sense of who I am.  It sent me on a search halfway across the country to the town where I was born to meet the family I didn’t know existed.

In doing so I found the written records of a man who participated in some the most significant events of the 20th Century, who died over sixty years ago and yet undeniably shares my DNA.

    1. Thank you, yes I wrote about family stories last year. This year’s A to Z is about a family story that was kept very, very quiet and would never have been discovered at all if not for DNA.

  1. That’s great, Linda! I look forward to reading your posts. I won’t be participating again this year as we will be away for some of it & I haven’t prepared, having just published my new novel.
    I will have to follow up on some of the connections I’ve been informed of after I got the results of my DNA sample.

  2. Having just published a novel I can understand you not doing the A to Z. Writing a novel is something above and beyond a month long blog. I have one in my head but I don’t know if it will ever eventuate. The A to Z is all good preparation however.
