Searching for Biological Father - Related to MITCHELLS, Portland and JOSEPHS, Saint Andrew & Kingston
by: A Mitchell/Josephs descendant

I am searching for my biological father who does not know I existed! What I know about him so far is that he is a descendant of the MITCHELL family From Black Hill, Portland on one side and on the other side he is a descendant of the JOSEPHS/ARBONNE out of Kingston and Saint Andrew. I was conceived around the end of October of 1973 somewhere in Lime Hall, Or Steer Town, Saint Ann. My mom was young and things happened and as a result, I was born. I know he does not know that I was conceived and I have done several Ancestral DNA tests and this linked me to his family and some cousins all of which are coming from the MITCHELLS (Portland) and JOSEPHS/ARBOIN (Kingston & Saint Andrew. Anyone who may know of any connections to these family and know of the connections please contact me ASAP, I would be delighted to hear from you and I am also offering a reward for anyone who is able to help me track him down or any of his close relatives. I know that his Great grandfather was Alexander Mitchell, Black Hill, Portland, and William Josephs out of Kingston/Saint Andrew. please email me at josephsmitchell74@gmail.com
