January 2004:  The genealogist of today has three of the most powerful tools imaginable at their finger tips. The computer, to hold large files, the Internet to search out leads, and now the Family Tree DNA project for when the paper trail fails. I have spent three years trying to connect to a Sorrels in VA. The paper trail was skimpy to begin with and further research didn't improve it. I figured I would never get the documentation that I needed to prove myself to this ancestor. Then I happened to talk with a person who was a known descendant of the Sorrels I was wanting to connect to and he told me that he had his DNA done through the Family Tree project. I sent mine in (actually a cousin) and we had a perfect match!  Needless to say I was ecstatic.This is  a wonderful program and I am so glad that I am a part of it.   Molly Sorrell Brown
