Father shares life changing discovery made possible with AncestryDNA

Barry is a veteran genealogist who took an AncestryDNA test to help confirm his decades worth of research. However, an average research day turned into a life‑changing event when he discovered a parent‑child match.  It was more than three decades ago that Barry drove his pregnant friend to the hospital. What he never suspected was the baby born that day was his own daughter. Having no known biological children, he was in shock to discover he did in fact have a biological daughter all this time. They were reunited last Thanksgiving and discovered they had much more in common—they are both genealogists. Or as Barry dryly joked: “We both love dead people.”
