"We appear to be related according to our DNA results and I was curious to know the connection.
My family has been based Jamaica since the 1830s.
Do you have any clues as to our family connections?
I also have communication from a DNA cousin, who was put up for adoption at birth, with a very interesting story. He's trying to find his biological connections. Our connection seems to be maternal because his biological parents are from Ohio where I know many of my maternal family went to from Mississippi -- but time & research will tell. I am drawn to this request & almost feel obligated to find out if we are related so I can give him the sense of family that I always had.
At any rate, now I have to seriously step up my game to understand DNA connections.
