Geneablogy: An occasional Journal about our experiences exploring our heritage

Wednesday, December 13, 2017

Just a quick followup on the posts regarding my conclusion that Charles Leon Schmitt was the son of Marie Archange Soulliere, not Robert Schmitt. Laura and I have had DNA testing done at 23andme and Ancestry in the past year. Both of them have features where they show you people who you share genes with and are presumably related to (more likely the more DNA you share). In looking at the family trees posted by some of my genetic cousins, I note that some of them are related to descendents of Leon Chrysostome Soulliere and Archange Desjardins. So if I had any doubt that my conclusion was correct, I believe it is dispelled by these connections. Yay science!
