Aired on 08/08/2015 | CC tv-14
Evelyn's mother, Sylvia, has never known the identity of her biological father, but, unbeknownst to her, that may be about to change. Evelyn hired an investigative genealogist to locate her grandfather, and learned that the man who was a potential match is deceased. Fortunately, the man had a brother who lives near Evelyn's mother and sister in the Bronx.

Evelyn and her sister submitted a DNA test to see whether this man was their great-uncle, and the results are finally in. Evelyn flies to New York City to be with her family when they learn the truth. "This envelope holds the answers to a 60-year-old family mystery, and it could also hold the identity of my grandfather," she says.

Nervously, Evelyn and her sister tell their mother what they've been up to. After explaining the situation, it's time for the moment of truth.

Watch the above video to see Sylvia's reaction.
