And Poof, just like that, President Andrew Jackson:
- is not my ancestor,
- and his so-called illegitimate child is actually the son of his now biological and not adoptive father.
DNA is a cool little thing. I found a person I share DNA with, and the only person we have in common on our ancestry tree is Peter Ingle, thought to be Andrew Jackson Ingle’s adoptive father. I am very confused when it comes to understanding DNA results (I don’t understand how I can carry only 7% of “French DNA markers”), but I believe that “proves” that Peter and Andrew Jackson are blood related, probably father and son.
That is, unless there is a mistake on either of our trees. But I will stick to that version until I find another clue.
Genealogy is detective work for dead people!
