    My father was adopted and he is adamant that he DOES NOT want to know who is biological parents are. On the other hand, I am very interested and I have recently been thinking about ordering a DNA kit. I feel that my father would be really hurt if I were to find out information about his family on my own. Should I go ahead and order the kit or not? Yes, I have already asked my dad his thoughts and he was not happy about it.

    Best answer: She and her family appear on the 1870 census as

    Calvin Bess 40
    Versilia Bess 35
    Flora J Bess 5
    Isera Bess 2

    All are mulatto, b. N. Carolina.
    They are living in Smiths Twp, Robeson, North Carolina.
    The nearest PO is Lumberton, Robeson, North Carolina.

    An Ancestry.com user has corrected the record:
    Bass rather than Bess
    Correction due to an error in transcription.
    Submitted by: EsauBass on 1/14/2011

    It looks like "Bess" to me, so if it should be "Bass", it was incorrect on the original.

    I can't find them in 1880.


    Someone has coupled that census record with this Civil War service record:
    Name: Calvin Bass
    Side: Confederate
    Regiment: 15th Regiment, North Carolina Infantry
    Company: I
    Rank In: Private
    Rank Out: Sergeant
    Alternate Name: James C./Bass


    The Mormons,
    https://www.familysearch.org/search
    have
    United States, Freedmen's Bureau, Records of Freedmen's Complaints
    Name Calvin Bess
    Event Type Residence
    Event Date 20 May 1867
    Event Place Lumberton, Robeson, North Carolina
    Event Place (Original) Lumberton, Lee, North Carolina
    Gender Male
    Race Freedman

    You can register with them for free and read the complaint, if you like. That means Calvin was a slave in 1860, which strongly hints, but does not prove, that Versilla was a slave too, and did not have a maiden name. Slaves did not have surnames, one of the many indignities they suffered. This also throws some doubt on that Confederate Service record, as the south did not let many slaves serve.

  • Are DNA tests you can order online accurate about your ancestry?

    I told my mother I want to do it. She thinks it's all bullsht and keeps telling me not to do it because it's a waste of money. Knowing her parents and grandparents and great parents and who they were is enough for her

    Best answer: The whole process of finding information is you work backwards and find ALL the records an individual generated during their lifetime, what is available will depend on the country, civil/parish records and date you are looking...... so surname of an ancestor, normally that would be the maiden name of the women and you will find that once you find the marriage record, that could be civil, could be parish, could be both, also in some countries the birth certs of the couples children show the maiden name of the mother...if the children were baptised in one church, it is 'likely' the couple married in the same church and/or had banns read both would show the maiden name of the women and so that is the first set of real records you look at........... as you don't say whose surname you are looking for, what country or the date it is very difficult to expand on any advice, however think 'out of the box' it is only a brick wall because you are looking at the wrong records or missing records you could look at

    Best answer: If Emma Stone's 2nd great grandmother (ES2GGM) is your mother's great aunt, one of your mother's grandparents is a sibling of ES2GGM. So:

    Generation 1: Your mother's grandparent & ES2GGM = siblings
    Generation 2: Your mother's parent & ES 1st great grandparent = 1st cousins
    Generation 3: Your mother & ES grandparent = 2nd cousins
    Generation 4: You & ES parent = 3rd cousins
    Generation 5: Your (future) child & ES = 4th cousins
    You and Emma are third cousins once removed through her mother or father. I threw in your future child as a bonus.
