Traditional and digital genealogy to help adoptees find their birth family
We are looking for genealogists who have over two years experience and are familiar with interpreting DNA results to help adoptees to find their most likely families or origin. The science behind autosomal DNA testing from companies like AncestryDNA, 23andMe, and Family Tree DNA offer quite a lot or opportunities to help locate birth family through the results containing biological cousins of the adoptee. We encourage all our assistance to be performed through AncestryDNA and ancestry.com as it has become the most popular source for testing with the largest database of matches. It is also well suited for connecting these cousins with family trees that are frequently made public for their matches. We have a form on our website located here: https://www.searchangels.org/volunteers/ for individuals who feel they have the knack for helping these kinds of individuals.
