Friends since middle school find out after 60 years that they are biological brothers
Two friends of 60 years found out just before Christmas that they are actually biological brothers.
Alan Robinson and Walter Macfarlane have known each other since 6th grade. From playing football together in school to playing cribbage together in retirement, Robinson and Macfarlane have been best friends through the years but only recently learned they were related through a DNA comparison on Ancestry.com.
While Robinson was adopted, Macfarlane never knew his father. Robinson also had a younger brother who died when he was young, so he had no other family, which prompted him to start searching on Ancestry.com. Macfarlane was also searching for his father with the help of his family and eventually turned to the same website.
