Finding Birth Families Using DNA
Every day, adoptees and other with unknown parents, such as foundlings, donor-conceived individuals, and others are able to find their birth families with DNA testing. DNA is a powerful tool that can be used to find a birth father, for example.
Typically, after someone has their DNA tested at one of the DNA testing companies, distant relatives are found, such as second, third, or fourth cousins. From this, family trees are built “up” to grandparents, great grandparents, and further back. Overlap in the matches’ trees are found, oftentimes using “Mirror Trees.” Then, trees are built “down” to include all discoverable descendants of those ancestors.
This online education event is intended for people searching for their own biological parents and those with parents or ancestors who were adopted or otherwise have unknown parents. Join DNA expert Mary Eberle of DNA Hunters for over 3 hours of recorded webinars PLUS some amazing handouts with Finding Birth Families Using DNA Boot Camp!
