Re: If Results are Not Beneficial to Research, Why Test? #dna

I helped a man find his birth family via autosomal DNA. It found a 2nd
cousin. I asked the 2nd cousin if she had any relatives who had ever
lived in St. Louis (where the man had been born) and yes, her 2nd
cousin's father had lived in St. Louis. Turned out the 2nd cousin's
father was the man's birth father and the man found his birth family,
proven by YDNA testing, similarity in features, and facts matching the
stories he'd been told about his birth father.
