SEARCHING FOR BIOLOGICAL RELATIVES: FROM DNA TEST TO REUNION
This long, detailed and thorough description for searching for birthparents and birth families first appeared as a myHeritage.com blog. It is re-printed here with permission from Richard Weiss, the writer, Robin Grantham and Dr. Pam Tabor, the editors, refined and distributed by myHeritage.com. We add it as an aid to successful searching for very special and personal reunions.
This is a guest post by Richard Weiss. Richard is the Executive Vice President and Director of Programs at DNAAdoption. He found his birth mother through a traditional search and birth father through a DNA search. He is an experienced genetic genealogist and adoption search angel. Richard is also on the advisory board for the MyHeritage pro bono project DNA Quest.
