The woman, who shared her story anonymously, said she had been married for about a year when her partner discovered he was half Native American.
The woman’s curiosity was stirred up because she, too, was Native Americanmothe – so she did some research and looked into his family tree, but was astounded by what she discovered.
She saw her own maiden name on the list after going back a short distance, so she compared his family tree to her own and discovered a link – her great-grandmother was his great grand aunt.

Taking to Reddit, she said: “I did some genealogy research on my husband’s maternal side of the family. I find his great-great-grandfather, who is officially Seminole Indian. We are excited at this point because we find that his grandmother was also born in Oklahoma on the Seminole territory. Well, I decided to go back a Lil further, and I become alarmed when I find my mother’s maiden surname down the line. I look into it further and find that they were born on Chickasaw territory in Oklahoma.
“At this point, my adrenaline kicks in, and I immediately jump back to my mother’s family tree. And there I found her. The woman that connects us. My second great-grandmother, and my husband third great grand aunt.
“The first thing I thought of was my mother-in-law saying ‘I feel like she’s a part of me’ when we first met. Funny how that works.
“No going back now. We’re married and we have a daughter together. It really is a small world.”
