A Complex Example of DNA Success
This BBC News story recounts the long and complicated process that 80-year-old Anthea Ring had in finding her birth parents after being abandoned with her hands tied, in a blackberry bush in southern England. This is an excellent example of both the limits and the power of DNA testing to make discoveries that previously would have been virtually impossible. From my perspective, it provides an example of the level at which DNA interacts with genealogical research to provide accurate family information. You will enjoy taking the time to read the entire article entitled, "Who were my parents - and why was I left on a hillside to die?"
