Adoptees and anyone with unknown parentage now have brand new opportunities for finding biological family. Wendy Wilson Spooner uses Genetic Genealogy professional research combined with advances in DNA testing that can solve previously unknown mysteries. Deep databases at testing companies make it possible to connect individuals with significant DNA matches, indicating close biological relationships, whether immediate family, or 1 – 6th cousins. These highly effective methods have solved numerous cases.
Spooner’s education includes a post-graduate diploma from the University of London’s College of Teachers in Genealogy, Heraldry, and Documentary Sciences – post-nominals (LCoT), and earned advanced certificates in both Forensic and Genetic Genealogy. Along with her experience, she holds the firm belief, “Everyone has the right to know his or her family origins and where they came from.”
