My Aunt Wanda says, "Don't shake the family tree; you never know what will fall out!" I just read an article about people who are getting genetic testing to find out about about their ancestry and are getting some wild surprises. A lot of people's paternity is different than that in official records. This is why some American Indian tribes trace the family line through the mother.

Years ago, many people kept adoption secret, so that may account for some of these surprises.
