Just about every person who has gone through the adoption system has at one time or another wondered about their birth parents. Now, through the innovation and technology of DNA testing, we can discover more about our family and our roots than ever before. And because this trend is becoming so popular, it can even help you find birth parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, or another long-lost family member.
How Can DNA Help?
With so many individuals having their DNA tested for ancestry, health screening, and even child conception, there is actually a great chance that when you enter your information in, you will get some sort of match. After you receive your DNA results, simply enter your information into heavily-used databases such as AncestryDNA, Family Tree DNA, or MyHeritage. You are likely to get some sort of match, whether it be a parent or a cousin.
How Does it Work?
You receive about half of your DNA from your parents. The other half is a compilation of grandparents. So, when your DNA is entered into the database, it will scan others’ DNA to find matches. According to how similar they are, you may be looking at a cousin, aunt, sibling or even parent. Unlike other testing forms, there are no known variances to these rules, so your answers are always concrete.
