This week I made my biggest ever breakthrough on my tree, when I managed to solve a 20 year brickwall, thanks to the powers of DNA. For 20 years I have had one 'missing' great great grandfather.

Of my 16 great great grandparents, one has always been listed as 'unknown father', well not anymore!!!!!

If I said it was like looking for a needle in a haystack, well before, I didn't even know which haystack to even look in!!!!

Well done. I think even before the DNA evidence, the middle name being the same as the likely father's surname is a good clue, no smoke without fire as they say, but nice to get actual proof with DNA.
