Turns out, Moultroup’s own daughter had purchased a DNA ancestry kit last year as a gift for herself and her mother.

"It was just a cool Christmas present and it has completely changed our lives," daughter Bonnie Chase told NBC.

The results led her to a distant cousin.

"One of those relatives is a first cousin. And I said, that my mother's name was this, was Genevieve Mitch,” Moultroup said. “And she said, 'Oh, that's my aunt,' and, 'Oh, by the way, she's still alive,' and I was floored."
