    There is evidence that my sister and I might not have the same father.Has anyone had experience of using sibling d n a test? ,I have read mixed reviews.The results would not effect our relationship and our mother has passed away.

    Unless you have the dna of the father, then the tests can only tell you a likelihood that you share the same parents.

    Some friends have used dna testing using mouth swaps, but only to determine if twins are identical or not.
    Should've = Should HAVE (not 'of')
    Would've = Would HAVE (not 'of')

    No, I am not perfect, but yes I do judge people on their use of basic English language. If you didn't know the above, then learn it! (If English is your second language, then you are forgiven!)

    If your father is still alive get a DNA test off him and see if it matches both you and your sister.

    If your father has passed away ask the potential other father for a DNA test.

    If both fathers have passed away then it doesn't really matter.
