We are all genetically related to one-another. Genetic genealogy uses DNA information in combination with genealogical and historical records to establish relationships between even the most distantly related individuals. This is a substantial improvement in human identification capability from current forensic testing methods that enable exact or near exact matches. When you contribute your DNA data, you help identify victims, missing persons, and perpetrators of crimes — even if you are a distant genetic relative.
