Find Your Roots Through DNA
Print this page


You’ve done a DNA test. Now what? We can help. 

Our vision is to help everyone be as successful as possible when trying to find their biological roots through DNA testing.  

Our mission is to teach and guide people searching for their biological roots to use DNA in combination with traditional genealogy search techniques and when applicable specialized adoption search techniques, by providing robust education, methods, guidance, and support. 

Our goals as a 501c(3) non-profit/charitable organization: 

     Provide everyone—not just adoptees, foundlings, donor conceived and those with unexpected DNA results—information they can use to learn more about their biological roots. 

     Serve as a resource to the genetic genealogy community by providing education and increased awareness of information, resources, and lessons learned from the adoption community. 

     Offer courses -open to everyone - which provide up-to-date instruction on how to gather, analyze and interpret DNA results in conjunction with traditional genealogy search techniques and our search methodology

     Ensure our students and those using our methodology are able to use basic tools to evaluate their DNA results and to provide an environment where students can develop advanced skills. 

     Continue to create and refine our curriculum and maintain a repository of information about tools, techniques and sources via the efforts of our all-volunteer team. 

     Provide support and guidance to anyone on a journey of discovery for biological connections - utilizing lessons learned from the adoption community to help with contact, reunion, and other considerations. 

     Promote open sharing of information between individuals as well as government agencies.
