Adoption Research

Are you looking for a loved one that was adopted or were you adopted and want to discover where you came from?

     At Discovering Connections we help people work through these mysteries. With a combination of DNA analysis and traditional genealogy research we help you unravel the mystery surrounding your family history.

     Were you given a page regarding your adoption with non-identifying information? Is this all of the information you know about your parents? Given so little information the task of searching for your birth parents and extended family can seem daunting. Our expertise can help you take those few facts and turn it into something more.

     Have you taken a DNA test, but do not know how to make sense of the match results? We can help you sort through your long list of 3rd and 4th cousin matches to find common ancestors. Through our tree building and research we can construct trees that will help us triangulate where you fit in that tree.

     

     If you have not taken a DNA test yet, we can help you choose the DNA test that is right for you and then start our research to help you make new discoveries.
