I find searching for Jewish roots, to be downright fascinating. My DNA did not show any Jewish DNA however, in my family, there are many surnames that say otherwise. What is often confusing to me, are those baptismal records. My mother used to tell me about attending Seders and observing Sukkot. While growing up, as a child it just never hit me, until I became a Christian and started learning about the Jewish roots of Christianity.
Only God knows, who is who in my family - but it's always fun to search and research.
I came across this article - for those who are wondering if they may have some Jewish heritage back in their families -
