Know My Roots Genetic Genealogy is dedicated to assisting adoptees and those with unknown parentage in finding biological family through traditional genealogical research and DNA testing.  New opportunities for finding family are available via testing companies, which have created databases for the purpose of connecting individuals with others who share significant DNA percentages. DNA "matches" within these databases indicate close  biological relationships - from parents and siblings, to 1 - 6th cousins. Numerous cases of unknown paternity and adoption have been solved through these methods.
