DNA, North Carolina, Paternal Kin

DNA Definites, no. 1: Aldridge & Artis.

I’m partial to the bells and whistles at 23andme and seldom check my AncestryDNA results. Today, though – eureka! An estimated 4th cousin with a Shared Ancestor Hint, John William Aldridge.  I checked G.J.’s family tree and immediately knew exactly who she is – the granddaughter of one of my great-grandfather’s sisters. Our most recent common ancestors (MRCA) are John and Louvicey Artis Aldridge, and we’re actually 2nd cousins once removed.
