Discover my family history

Campaign created 6 months ago
I've been trying to research my family tree, and have hit a bit of a mystery, especially on my paternal grandfather's side. I'm curious about DNA research, but never seem to have the spare cash, other needs always take precedence.  I thought I might do a GoFundMe to get the funds for a DNA test or two, shake the family tree and see what nuts fall out. I'm hoping to take multiple tests, starting with FamilyTreeDNA, then 23andMe and Ancestry, to get a better picture.

I hesitated to even do this, because it's basically begging my friends for money, unless this is one of those random things that goes viral and gets retweeted like crazy.  But hey, people donated $20 million for a wall and are getting refunds for that, who knows.  Maybe one of them will see it and decide this is worthy.  To quote the great classic Princess Bride: "Think it'll work?  It would take a miracle."

If that miracle happens and this hits $1000, I'll get whole genome sequencing done from Veritas Genetics.
