A couple of mistakes in there, but at least it gets the word out. I said she has a Finnish GREAT grandparent, not grandparent. Also I think her grandparents and/or great grandparents were the immigrants, probably not her parents. And hundreds of thousands in the databases, not tens as many of you  know. Good for visibility regardless. We need more testers from Lake Worth, Florida, so hopefully this will help!   #adoptee #DNA   #foundling   #genealogy

The other side of the story...The following is a guest post by Alice Plebuch demonstrating the potential of #DNA testing. When Alice first contacted me about two and a half years ago with the beginning of this incredible tale, I knew that the answer was just waiting to be discovered one day through genetic #genealogy . Many of you may have heard part of her family's story already, but I thought it only made sense for Alice to share it from the beginning through to its completion since it was her DNA test that started the unravelling of this mystery and her persistence that, finally, led to the resolution. (The final piece of evidence just arrived this week and, with it, the confirmation needed by Alice's #family to confirm the #babyswitch  and finally share their story.)

I loved this story. And now, I hope Alice has time to research her mother more so we can find the link between our maternal Irish families!

Due to the disagreements about the use of small segment data in genealogical research, I spent hours digging deep into multi-generational data to see what it tells us about the reliability of segments under 5 cM. http://www.yourgeneticgenealogist.com/2014/12/the-folly-of-using-small-segments-as.html
Responsible genealogists adhere to high standards of proof in their research, in the evidence that they present and in the conclusions they reach. I strongly believe that genetic genealogists should as well. When we make clai...

by Finding Your Roots Genetic Genealogy Consultant, CeCe Moore The episode that aired last week with Carole King, Alan Dershowitz and Tony Kushner did not include any DNA research, but that doesn’t mean that I hesitated to delve into their genetic genealogy. In fact, a short segment featuring Alan is included in the special DNA-themed …

How do I deal with it when there isn't much to say about the #DNA  on #findingyourroots ? #genealogy  
by Finding Your Roots Genetic Genealogy Consultant, CeCe Moore Sometimes no matter how hard I try, with so little time to research, I just can’t come up with a good DNA-related story angle for certain guests. That is pretty much the case for last week’s episode. This typically happens when the DNA supports the genealogical …

An adopted person can -- sometimes -- be fortunate enough to find the identity of their biological mother and father through one of the major commercial DNA tests available today. And they can potentially learn quite a lot from it....
