I started using GEDmatch two years ago, with no particular goal, I just input my info in case there was a match someday. I liked the ability to upload my data easily. Suddenly, I was contacted last week by someone who said I was their half-sibling! We connected and started online chatting and now I have an older half-brother. He never knew who his father was so I was able to fill in a lot of details for him. We’ve been exchanging family pictures. GEDmatch was so easy to use!
My Advice For All Future GEDmatch Users
Be prepared for family connections you didn’t know existed!
