MARY LORRAINE DANROTH
People like to ask me why I needed to find out my Ancestry. I have to keep reminding them that I am not German...and I am sure as hell not Scottish! Ancestry has a new feature on there site that they call ThruLines, In theory it is a great idea...unless you're adopted. Apparently someone from the Miller side decided that they would add me to their tree without marking me as adopted. So in turn I now have twice as much work to figure out what matches to my trees. There is no DNA connection to this person so anyone that peruses the ThruLines experiment are going to come across the same problems that I have.
It's funny how this Adoption crap touches people in ways that they weren't expecting.
I have reached out to this person in the hopes that they understand what this will do to multiple peoples brains.
It seems like a spend a lot of time trying to make sense of what people put into their trees...I would love it if someone from my Birth Mothers side would just look inside themselves and reassess what they want to leave behind for future generations. It just seems unnecessary to be so petty about something that is in the past. If I as an adoptee have to learn and analyze who I am at 50+ years old, I'm sure anyone can do it. I'm also sure it would be easier for someone that has a better idea as to who they are and where they come from than any adopted person would.
Once again I AM NOT A GERMAN SCOT!!!!
