I have recently started digging into my DNA matches.
I have several closely related matches. I was born in Montana and my grandma was married to a man who has no biological relationship to me. However my mom has lied about who my father is my entire life.
The result was unbelievable I have DNA matches to my non bio grandpa's first wife who had 6 siblings and 4 kids. I first went straight to my grandma's grandchildren luckily one had done the same Ancestry test as me. We had no DNA match but shared matches.
I am 75% 1st cousins with a female and even closer to her cousin and 2 others that are above 500 segments all related.
I have most of the grandparent's, great grandparent's and sibling's names. I just do not know how to map it on paper.
Any suggestions on how to go about this?
Also I have reached out to several people and only a few will even respond and I have been blocked from seeing matches with a few as well.
