Hi @TimothySchecher have you started your tree on familysearch.org? That’s how I even found people I share ancestors with by looking at the folks who have changed or added info about my ancestors... then I send them a message introducing myself 😊
Yes I have started my family tree
If you submit your DNA to one of the testing sites, you will find people that you are closely related to. From our previous conversations, I know that you are looking for paternal family members. Ancestry has the largest database for DNA. You will most likely find some close matches to contact.
