The real phrase that correctly describes "non-paternity event"
for our DNA-genealogy purposes is "bad documentation". It doesn't
matter whether somebody is adopted, or a bastard, if it is correctly
documented. One of he most famous of my ancestors was a bastard, but
we all know who the parents were.
