Forensic Testing & Genealogy Services

We use extracted DNA or biological evidence from your case, to create a DNA “profile” that can then be uploaded into our FamilyTreeDNA database for familial matching purposes. 

Use forensic genealogy on your most difficult cases to unlock investigative leads.

Investigative Genetic Genealogy (IGG) Services

Forensic Genealogy is the utilization of Genetic Genealogy, genetic analysis in combination with traditional genealogy research to solve a crime. Our team utilizes familial matching within the FamilyTreeDNA database to identify individuals who may be related to an unknown sample and sometimes the identity of the unknown individual associated with the sample.
