DNA Research #DNA MyHeritage DNA Quest Initiative Extended -- Reuniting Adoptees with Their Biological Families #dna


Jan Meisels Allen
 

MyHeritage has extended its pro bono initiative to reunite adoptees with
their biological families. It was one year ago, March 2018, that MyHeritage
first launched its DNA Quest initiative when they donated 15,000 DNA kits to
adoptees and those seeking to reunite with their families. Due to the
success of the first initiative, MyHeritage announced today that they are
donating an additional 5,000 MyHeritage DNA kits for free for eligible
participants.

Adoptees and family members searching for their biological relatives can
apply through April 20, 2019. Applicants that are selected and the DNA kit
will be mailed to them by June 16, 2019. Results are expected by August
2019. Go to: https://www.dnaquest.org/

If you have taken a DNA test with another DNA testing company you can upload
your DNA data to MyHeritage for free and participate. Go to:
https://www.myheritage.com/dna/upload

Preference will be given to people who are not able to afford genetic
testing, and to those who sign up first.

Those who are on the waitlist >from the earlier initiative are invited to
return to the site and submit a full application while the DNA kits are
still available.
