Unknown parentage has previously prevented many people from researching their ancestry. Advances in DNA technology mean that adoptees, donor conceived, foundlings, war babies, child migrants, orphans, or anyone with unknown parents or grandparents, all now have a chance at learning who they are and where they come from.
Relinquishing parents, gamete donors, and others looking for missing offspring can also use DNA to enable descendants to find them more easily.
We will outline what is involved, how to get started, which tests suit your particular search, and where to get assistance with your results (if required).
