Finding Family with DNA Testing

January 2 meeting
7:00 p.m.
Zoom only

Learn how adoptees and others find biological parents and siblings through DNA testing. Review the case that started it all and see today’s recommended strategies. View examples of surprise discoveries and see the tools used to identify relationships.

Speaker Richard Hill was the first adoptee to identify my birth family through genetic genealogy DNA testing. This was so remarkable at the time that my story was later told on the front page of The Wall Street Journal. To share what I learned with other adoptees and genealogists, I created the DNA Testing Adviser website in 2008.

This program is scheduled to be Zoom only. We would like to have hybrid meetings, but we need a volunteer to manage the second computer to do so. Volunteer if you can! email:
