Well, Ancestry DNA roped me in to subscribing to regular Ancestry, and I am finding the DNA matching to be helpful sorting out my family tree.
I have always thought my maiden name was Lockett, but evidently that is a recent development. My DNA Verified great-grandfather switched from Lockhart to Lockett, for no readily-evident reason. My maternal great-grandfather also switched names from DeWolfe to DeGarmo, but that was because he was a criminal and need an alias to start a new life far away from his seven children.
I tried using Ancestry before to find out missing branches of the family tree, but without the DNA matching and with the name nonsense it was difficult. The new DNA feature just hands you all your relatives on a silver platter - or in my case, a pewter platter. No big names so far, except for the Hogg family in Texas (notable for naming the heiress Ima Hogg), and for Doctor Thomas Walker, an early explorer from Virginia.
Interesting, but no relation revelations. Still, knocked out all my concerns about having been switched at birth, and I might possibly look up my grandmother’s identical twin’s photos to see a face that might resemble mine.
