I grew up in a household with half siblings. Same mother different fathers. I grew up never knowing who my dad was. As I got older I started to ask questions. My mother would push back with resistance. I have talked to my mother's sisters and brothers as well, to try and find out anything about my dad and his family. No help there. Everyone is very vague about it all, lots of secrets and secretive talks amongst the elders.
Last year, 2019, I used the DNA kit from 23&me trying to uncover some information there. Now, the surnames of immediate family begin with B, J, K and M. 2 sisters who share the same father, are Bs, 1 brother different father J, then myself, K, my baby brother is an M because of an unknown father. Now the Js and Ks are distant in relation. And my two sisters, when I search the B surname it pops up quite a bit, through another surname name of N. There are a host of other surnames, but I'm starting with what I have been told.
Here is where my questions are. If I am a half sibling of my B sisters, would their relatives show up in my genealogy lineage?
Also the surnames of J and K?
Where would they essentially come into play if my brother is a J would that be some of his relatives?
And the long lineage of K, if I am suspected of being a B.
I'm very new to this DNA process and trying to break it down I guess to see if I am indeed a B and how to move forward.
