Two 72-year-old women discover they were switched at BIRTH after taking 23andMe test (LINK)

Since the advent of DNA genealogical testing, the world is getting odder and odder- and old family mysteries- some, we didn’t even know existed- are getting churned up.

I’ve discovered this in my own family research, via 23andme.com, as well. My grandmother’s father wasn’t her biological father at all- it was another man, whom I tracked down via mathematics, ancestry research, and the odd stranger popping up in my group of close relatives out of the blue.

More on my family’s journey at another time- but for now, this is an interesting article.

It always boggles my mind how much Maisie looks like my mother’s side of the family. The child is only 25% Asian and she looks much more so. Genetics are a funny roulette. She’s built like her father, though, thank goodness- long legged and super tall and slim…
