Looking for information on my great grandmother's birth family. Mary/Maria/Marie was born June 22, 1886 the middle of three children: Katherine born between 1880-1885, and Edward born between 1887-1888. Parents may have been named Georg and Katherine/Catherine/Katherina Steinbach/Steinbeck/Steinbock. We have a picture of all three children taken in Yankton, SD in 1888 prior to their being separated. Katherine went to either Kansas, or Kansas City, and Edward possibly to California. Mary was adopted by the Broekel family from Mound, SD. Not sure if it's possible the children were orphan train riders or not, but can't find any information close to these names in South Dakota.
Looking for any information on the family of Ellen Joyce Miedema. She was adopted in ant Nov 1939 at 8 months old to Gerben and Anna (Baumer) Miedema . Residence in 1940 was Detroit, Michigan.

I am seeking my birth family. I just received DNA results from Ancestrydna.com and I would like to find out any and all information I can about myself and my family. A cousin advised this would be a good place to add to my research so here I am.
I know I was born in Fort Dix, NJ on 11/4/1972. I believe I have the basic work-up of my parents. My mother was described as cafe au lait in complexion which I guesstimate as being african american, however they do not describe my father's complexion. Sidenote:Ancestrydna informed me my dna is 59% from Africa and 38% from Europe. More specifically on the Africa side Nigeria, Senegal and Ivory Coast and the basic makeup and on the European side it is made up of Great Britain, West Europe and Iberian Peninsula. How that filters down to my parents in 1972 I have no idea but if that helps anyone out there connect themselves to me I am all about sharing!
I hope to hear from anyone with any nugget of information. I am including a current day pic of myself, maybe you recognize someone?
