    Alright, I guess you want pictures. Here are a few :).

    This were my great grand parents on my fathers side. Their parents were German Jews who emigrated from Posen (part of Germany at the time) to Nicaragua in the 1860s.

    If you really want to find out about your heritage and are not afraid of giving them your DNA, go to https://www.23andme.com

    When I did it was 99 bucks for both health and ancestry. You got the ancestry for 99 and ancestry. com for free.

    Here is an interesting case of a guy who went to the sites you mentioned to find out who he really was. A few days ago I was watching videos on Youtube about The outfit in Las Vegas and how they used the teamsters pension fund to buy casinos and ended up watching videos about Paul Fronczak and his story. I feel terrible about the parents (the Fronzack).
