I have DNA on Ancestry, Family Tree and 23 and me. Looking for my maternal grandmothers biological parents she went by DOB 7/9/1902.She was adopted between 1911 and 1917. My grandma passed away in 1996
I have found family that I am related to on maternal side but how do you find that one missing link that connects us together?
Been doing this over a decade.1
In this situation, where there are three generations between you and the biological parents you are seeking, it can be hard to distinguish between relatives on your mother's fathers side and mother's mothers side. Have you got living uncles or aunts on your mother's side? They will have a lot of DNA from your grandmother that you didn't inherit. If your uncles or aunts have passed, then you could test your 1st cousins on that side.
Have you tried the Leeds Methods? This technique aims to sort your matches in clusters corresponding to each of your grandparents. It doesn't always work, but if it does, it could be very helpful. See: https://www.danaleeds.com/dna-color-clustering-the-leeds-method-for-easily-visualizing-matches/1
If you would like a second pair of eyes to look at your results, I would be happy to help you. At AncestryDNA you can temporarily allow others to view your DNA results. You can send me a private message to arrange this.
I volunteer for the WikiTree Adoption Angels project, but they unfortunately have a policy that they don't help with anything more distant than a grandparent.1

Our Familly tree shows my great granfather 6X was a Maj. Amos Morrill. I apply for membership with the Sons of the Revolution. they denide my membership as you cannot use just your family tree to show relationship. Is there anyway using the DNA that I can prove that Amos Morril son William (12 Sept 1782) is the father of Hollis H. Morrill 1820. Or vice versa.0

Contact any of the DNA companies (like Ancestry, 23 and Me, MyHeritage, etc) to find out what kind of tests they offer and their price. FamilySearch does not do DNA testing.0
