Ancestry DNA

So because a have a couple of  mysteries in my family. And just the love of history I have , I  decided to do an Ancestry DNA 

I got the test in November 2016 and did nothing with it until February-March 2017

Well I finally took test and results are coming in.

Family Mysteries 

Who was my grandmothers birth parents

(She was adopted)

From what I was told 

The Cleveland Protestant Orphanage Asylum on St Clain Avenue in Cleveland Ohio between 

1901-1910

She was given an adopted name and a hint of her middle name. 

St Clair was a hint about the place she was adopted from. 

I also heard many years ago her name may have been Bessie.  (Unsure if true)

I was told she may have been from most likely German decent. (Also unsure)

She has always gone by the birthday of 

July 9 1902

I spoke to Orphanage in Cleveland which is now called BeechBrook and they can’t tell me anything unless I know her birth name
That really let the wind out of my sail because they have her info. 

So I have to find another way I guess. 

And I have a lot of info on her as I knew her. And I also have info 

Im related to the founders of Youngstown Ohio

Where I grew up. 

Mystery 

Next mystery is on my fathers side

His father was illegitimate 

So I have no idea who his father was

They were from the former Yugoslavia 

Now Croatia

Zagreb-Velika Gorica area

He has his mothers last name. But not his fathers. No mention of the fathers name at all. 

I also have a couple other wild things from my fathers side 

Mystery 

Some one a female burned at stake hundreds of years ago …. I wonder why..
So stay tuned.  

If your great at research and family history I would love tips

Stay tuned…..
