Thank you everyone who supplied serious responses! I really appreciate your time, efforts and ideas. Really mind blowing when you think of the possibilities when compared to the precision or lack of precision in Ancestry DNA testing kits.

Here's the backstory.

The aunt who is represented on the results has been creating family drama about these results on account of her lack of sensitivity to the rest of the family members.

I'm very happy to have gone through these steps to find the solution. My intention was to shut down the pot stirrer on their behalf and now I can. They can either pony up the fees for the sibling DNA tests or continue to look like a fool in the eyes of her family who will never take her comments as serious unless and until she has the testing done which she is very unlikely to do.

;-)

I would appreciate it very much if you would learn how to handle an adult conversation regarding serious content without lowering yourself to adolescent level.

Had you yourself posted an inquiry such as this, I would have met you with sensitivity to the issues raised here; understanding that they involve real people with real lives and real relationships that are being disrupted by the results in question.

Which is why they asked for outside help from me and I posed my questions to use this board as part of my resources with which to get them an explanation for what they see in their results and what the implications are to their family relationships and how they might set out to heal them.

In other words, stop making joke posts. Get in the conversation and act like an adult or go to the children's table somewhere else.


You are the one that wrote that they could have had different mothers or fathers...it you have lost your sense of humor, you should probably post a MAD. by the way, I will sit at the child’s table with those that suggested it was because they were from Kentucky or West Virginia...and we can stick peas in our nose’s.

So...we’ve ruled out Kentucky? What about Tennessee? Pass the peas....

Not sure if anyone else had this situation too but I had an ancestry test that didn't show the exact relationship. Through research and stories we found it was a possible half sibling. Had to go to a company that did sibling DNA testing to confirm the relationship though. We did PaternityUSA sibling DNA test and got what we needed. https://www.paternityusa.com/sibling-dna-testing/

I believe I mentioned sibling DNA testing in this thread? It seems like a long time ago that I posted this though. I do think the Ancestry leaves too much to the imagination.

The family controversy that I mentioned ended up with 2 siblings now not speaking to each other. It's kind of interesting because our family tree is filled with all sorts of, shall we say, family drama. Okay, if I'm to be honest, it reads like a soap opera in places. ;-)

But still, when you consider the fact that the one sibling mentioned in this thread is still actively grieving loss while the other sibling almost seems to ignore the grieving (sort of) that's yet another way that Ancestry tests can dredge up all sorts of things and cause problems.

I STILL have not done my own kit yet and it's been sitting here for probably over 2 years!
