    Maybe you all have talked about this in previous sessions, but I was wondering as I was thinking about the family tree, if you’ve ever used one of the DNA tracing services that are really popular now to gather further information about lineage, relatives, etc.? And if so, what the pros and cons of it are as you see it.

    Personally, I’m a little skeptical about those because the government will have your information.
    But I’d like to know what others think about it?

    I never thought about the government/information part, Lizbeth. But I also feel like they’ve got everything on me already! Oy vey.

    I did the ancestry DNA testing (I completed the paperwork with a different last name because I had a similar thought – not wanting my information to be misused). I found it quite interesting – what showed up and also what didn’t show up in my ancestry. It made me think about entanglements and successive generations choosing partners who had similar fates in their family line.
