A woman who was gifted an ancestry DNA kit says she has been left with more questions than answers after she received her results back.
American woman Katye Snow told her story on TikTok and explained how she discovered the man she grew up with and called Dad wasn’t her biological father.
“A few months ago, my lovely brother got me one of those cool ancestry genealogy tests,” Ms Snow starts the video.
“And because my father’s adopted and my mother doesn’t know her real father I thought it was really cool to figure out my genealogy maybe find out some medical issues I don’t know about.
“This morning at 7am I got my results back and come to find out, there are a lot more questions than answers.”
Sharing her test results in the video, she showed her real father’s identity – a man by the name of Willie.
“Now that’s a surprise to me because I always thought my father was my father.
“But after speaking to both my mother and father.. nope! That’s my dad,” she says, referring to Willie.
