Genetic Genealogy and Law Enforcement
Do you have a biological sample from the crime scene of a cold case? We can help you use the GEDmatch genealogical database to find new leads to help you solve your case. We will take you step-by-step, but here is the general process:
1. Create a profile to upload to a DNA database, such as GEDmatch. This profile is different than CODIS.
2. Upload that profile to the database and search for genetic matches.
3. Use the genealogical information from genetic matches to identify ancestors for the submitted profile.
4. Perform descendancy research on those ancestors to identify descendants living today. Use traditional investigation and genealogy research to narrow down the list of descendants.
