With regard to DNA, are you ready for this? My 2x great grandmother by marriage her father married twice, his second wife had a child with him, so where would my DNA be shared please? X.

Didn’t quite understand that.

But you share dna with your direct ancestors and any other descendants they may have. So you would share some dna with the child of the second wife but not as much as you would share with children of from the first wife if she was your direct ancestor.
