Margaret
Millie
James
Clara
Jean
If they were born after 1940, there might not be easily accessible public record of them. The 1940 US census is the most recent census that has been released to the public. Apart from some directory records and sometimes death records, public documentation of people born after 1940 can be scarce and not always available online, for privacy reasons. I have not added any people I could not find record of - you're free to add them if you wish.

When I look at his siblings, I see Mike. My dad had one brother. Mike was married to Jean. There is also John, but he was married to My aunt Margie. So, it looks like they are adding his in laws as his blood relatives,p by mistake.
Your dad had a brother named John - again, I believe he was probably actually a half brother with the surname Ferarra. You may not have known him but the 1940 census attached to the family proves his existence - you can see for yourself. The John who married your Aunt Margie was a different man. The FS tree is correct.

I am pretty sure that my dads was the youngest of the family, so 1929 should be the last child. No one born after 1940. Who is Mike? And why weren’t James or Margaret and Jean on that tree? I just added James. He was a judge but I cannot find anything that says he was a judge in NY.

In 1940, it looks like only my father and Antionette were born when my grandparents were married. I wonder if everyone else is from the other marriage. I have no idea who Vinnie, a Michael and John are. I am sure I have never met them in my life and were never at the regular Sunday dinners. Not a single mention of them. This is getting confusing. I thought everything was cut and dry before I started this.

I guess you were farther behind then my granddaughters was. Hers came back 5the beginning of February.

You can celebrate St Patrick's day next month saying you're Irish

Do you have any decent DNA matches that you didn't expect?

You can be 99.99% sure that the irish is a statistical artifact, a product of how they match DNA against their reference panels. In fact, it's much more likely that true modern day irish have a smidgen of scandavian markers in their dna, and that's what you matched against.

I'm not sure that's correct. My maternal grandparents were from Norway and Sweden. My paternal grandparents were from the South of France near the Spanish border. I am 4% Irish, I'm quite sure it's not an artifact nor did it come from my French Basque grandparents. Ireland was invaded by Vikings for 200 years, some settled in Ireland and married Irish women and there were large numbers of Irish women who were returned to Scandinavia as slaves. Travel between Ireland and Scandinavia was common so the Irish have high levels of Viking DNA and conversely a good number of Scandinavians have Irish DNA.

See, much of what came back is very expected. My mom grew up in Ångermanland, Västernorrland in Sweden and that was one of the things mentioned. I already new that. My dad grew up in Southern Sweden and that was not mentioned.
I grew up in Stockholm.

That's what I was thinking. You mean Vikings raiding Ireland?
