Find Your Roots Through DNA
Print this page


This is the repository for documentation about using your DNA results. While the site was originally conceived of for adoptees, it is proving to be useful for genealogy as well. Our goal is to help you find the answers you are looking for through the use of DNA testing and more traditional adoption search methods.  Many people have been searching for years without success and are asking the question: Can DNA testing really help me? The answer (honestly) is “possibly”.

If you want to know what tests you should take, go here. If you are looking for something specific, use the search box in the upper right of this page. 

People who are new to DNA or even to adoptee searching, may have little idea what to do with the information they may have.  You may also find adoptees in your matches and need to work on their birth families. In 2011, a few of us who had been working with our own DNA results and helping new people understand theirs, got together and started the DNAAdoption group on Yahoo groups. You can join by going to
