The DNA ancestry test kits that determine ancestry will also reveal family secrets such as "Not the Parent Expected" or "Non-Parental Events" that are also known as NPEs. The DNA ancestry results do not match the paper trail when there is an extramarital affair, unknown to the family and perhaps, unknown to the legal father. Some estimates are that about 5% of tests reveal NPEs within two generations. Testing other family members will further prove your father or grandfather is not a biological relative.
