    I love my mother, but she think Obama is a Kenyan Muslim so the temptation is powerful to tell her. There is a fifth great-grandmother who sort of appeared out of nowhere(can't find family/census info) with a son who can be traced(on male line) back to colonial Jamestown. A great-aunt was told that she was Native American, but the DNA on my mom doesn't show and it is a bit far back.
    I get asked for help in researching sometimes by African-American DNA cousins, so your site looks helpful. Some people really don't know much about ancestors, and others grow up as I did, around a lot of people who talked a lot about different family members and their stories. I helped connect one DNA cousin to his unknown birth father's family.
