DNA Testing - know the In's and Out's of it. Genetic Genealogy, a new branch of genealogy combining genetics and traditional genealogy research, is the most accurate tool for the family historian. Family connections can be proven or disproven. DNA testing can support a paper trail which is often in question given the lack of surviving records. Its popularity grows daily with thousands testing monthly throughout the world.

MyHeritage's DNA Quest - pro bono project helping adoptees - is now global!
MyHeritage gave away 10,000 DNA tests to adoptees and family members trying to find their biological relatives in the US, but they have some left in their 15,000 goal!

So many adoptees wish to find their roots and many who put a child up for adoption wish to find their child. Many siblings and cousins have embraced their new relative.
