Finding real biological grandfather

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Crimson Report 1 Apr 2024 12:16

Hi Everyone, hope you are having a lovely Easter!

I am looking for some advice, I recently did an ancestry DNA test and found to my surprise that I have between 25 and 41 % welsh heritage, I have lots of matches for my mums mothers side but none for her fathers side( he had at least 9 brothers & sisters) so I am assuming that he was not her real biological father. I do however have a lot of unexplained welsh heritage matches, the highest one is 44cm on Ancestry but the same is 80% on myheritage, I am thinking that my real biological GF was welsh but am surprised that there are not any matches with higher cm.
I have a rough idea where to look as the same surnames are coming up again and again but how should I go about tracking my real GF down, I am lost and don't know really how or where would be the best place to 44cm too distant? I am lost and my brain is frazzled! Any advice on where to start would be greatly appreciated
:-S :-S
