Alan Robinson and Walter Macfarlane were friends for 60 years. Both were born and raised in Hawaii, played football for the same school, and neither knew their father. Walter decided one day he wanted to know more about his family history, so he turned to none other than Ancestry.com.
Once there, he found out he had identical X chromosomes to a user named Robi737. Robi, being Alan’s nickname and 737 being the type of aircraft he flew for Aloha Airlines. After asking Alan about it, they both discovered they had the same mother.
This weekend, the brothers did a big reveal to friends and family at a party. “This is the best Christmas present I can ever imagine happening” Alan said to reporters.
The two will travel and enjoy their retirement together.
