My family tree has some crazy nuts

Oh my DNA how you have shown me some weirdness! Bio Daddy was in prison, Bio Mom loved having them babies but never got into being a parent and had this thing about changing her name. Adopting out the kids seemed to be the family norm. I know a bit about my family history from my adoptive mom so I suppose you could say I'm not totally clueless. Just trying to connect the dots on the people who match my DNA. Plenty of information on bio mom's side. Not so much on bio Daddy's side. I only know he did prison time, was a widower when he married bio mom, is most likely dead (or he's really, really old) and his father's name was George. So far no picture of him. Guess I'll just have to keep on looking. You'd think there would be a mugshot or something! If you're wondering if I'm embarrassed about my parentage the answer is no. I had nothing to do with it and have nothing to be embarrassed about. We all have those skeletons in our closets and, apparently, my family closet is pretty big!

I bet if you dig hard enough you'll find that mugshot

That's sure more colorful than the background of a lot of people! Hope you can find more details. I had a half brother, but never could find him.

I did my DNA with ancestry.com and found a bunch of relations.

I was the only one of my bio dad's kids. There are eight of us altogether.

At least you found out something about your family.
