  • G'day, I'm new to this forum. I would like to ask for opinions about a situation with one of my ancestors. Without giving a name to start with, I have an ancestor who had a child at the age of 48/49. She had not had any children for 9 years before this birth. There was a daughter at home, aged 15 at the time of this birth.
    Having done our DNA tests, search/filter options make this an interesting puzzle.

    Hi cpad, without knowing how long go this was it is difficult to say. However in the past when it was frowned upon to be a young single mother it was not an uncommon practice for the baby to be taken in by a family member (mother, sister, aunt) and raised as their own. A way of raising the baby in its family and avaoiding the bias and stigma of the times. Maybe this could be the case with your ancestor.
