|My mom, about 1939|
My cousin L's DNA results confirm the paper trail and photo evidence linking us. He's my 2d cousin, 1x removed. His parents were at my parents' wedding (the photo shows them sitting at a table with other cousins from the Farkas family).
Just as important, he is also a close match with other relatives who I know are from my mother's side of the family.
Next step: Ask cousin L to upload the results to Gedmatch.com so I can analyze in more detail and look for additional matches. By the time I speak at the International Jewish Genealogy Conference later in the month, I should have a number of kit numbers to compare with other attendees.
More DNA adventures are ahead as I dig deeper into cM values and chromosome details.
