Who’s your grand-daddy?

Are you curious about DNA testing for genealogy?

A presentation January 21 by the Prince Edward County Public Library is sure to intrigue you! https://www.peclibrary.org/…/whos-your-great-great…/

When Ian McKelvie’s father Nelson passed away in 2007 he left stacks of genealogical paperwork and a mystery he thought would never be solved.

Nelson’s Great-Grandfather, John McKelvie was born illegitimate at Girvan, Ayrshire, Scotland in 1856. John’s mother, Elizabeth, returned home with her newborn baby to live with her parents. To add to the mystery, the 1881 Census indicated she was now blind.

Ian will present how he combined traditional genealogical research with his DNA test results to discover the identity of his Great-Great Grandfather and solve this 150 year-old mystery.
