We hope you all enjoyed your last holiday of the summer, Labor Day. Our kids are now back in school! So, it’s a perfect time to sit back and enjoy catching up with ARSS!
August found us busy with welcoming our newest Angel Alyson to our team! All of our other Angels were busy with many DNA projects. One, in particular, we had been working on for a year, finally came to an end. We had a full sibling “match” for a DNA member - through the My Heritage platform. He uploaded his DNA from Ancestry, we would have never had known he had a full brother match, had he not! We know this works. We continue to try and complete all our searches in a timely manner, however, truth be told some are easier than others! Remember, if you have done your DNA, please upload your raw results to My Heritage, FamilyTreeDNA (FTDNA). I know some will rebuff me on this but……Maybe someone can invent a NEW database platform that we can all access, that holds everyone’s DNA??!!
If anyone hasn’t been to our website lately, we have a “new look” for our “new year”! It’s is very exciting for us to see the great changes and new additions. Go and visit!!
"Best Genes You'll Ever Wear" Program
In August, we appealed to you, our viewership, to help us with our “Best Genes You’ll Ever Wear” program. I have some exciting news. We have been contacted by an anonymous “gifter” with a pledge for us. During the month of September, they will match us dollar-for-dollar for any gifts received! We couldn’t have asked for better timing. Thank you to this specific gifter, our past gifters, and any of you who feel a contribution of aid is something you can provide! To give double, click here.
We hope you will read our monthly news, and come back often to our website, Facebook page, and Instagram.
