About Me

I’m Mercedes, and I’ve been learning about genetic genealogy, family tree research, and DNA for more than five years.  I’ve helped countless family members, friends, online acquaintances, and readers of my blog understand their DNA results, find lost family members, and even find biological parents.  It’s my passion, so if there is ever any question that you have, I would love for you to send me an e-mail:

mercedes . brons @ gmail . com   (I added extra spaces to my e-mail address, so just take them out when you send your email.  I have to do that to stop spammers)

I live in the Southeast United States with my husband, four children, dog and cat.   My hobbies (other than genealogy!) are traveling, learning about history, and writing.  I’ve self-published several books and really enjoy the creative process.  In addition, I also speak Spanish fluently.

If you are just getting into learning about Genetic Genealogy (i.e. using your DNA test results to learn more about your family’s history, including finding close relatives), I hope that you find this website helpful.  My goal is to help you learn and figure out your mysteries.
