“Benefits of Using DNA for Adoption Cases” (Mexican American SIG)

Learn about the benefits of genetic genealogy in solving adoption cases.

Chris Pederson has been a teacher and public speaker for over 50 years and a genealogy researcher for almost 20 years. He was introduced to genealogy by an uncle who had done some work on his family history. Later, he was asked by a boss who knew Chris’ interest in genealogy to answer a few questions about searching for his birth parents. Chris found information for this person relatively quickly, which sparked his interest in turning genealogy into a business. Chris turned to DNA to solve other adoptees’ brick wall problems. That started his journey in using genetic genealogy to solve brick wall problems.
