Molecular Genealogy (also called "Genetic Genealogy") is the application of DNA to traditional genealogical research.

We have all come up against barriers or "brick walls" in our genealogical research, where incomplete information prevents us from tracing our ancestry or making connections with other families.

Molecular Genealogy can help break through those barriers by complementing records-based research with rapid advances in DNA technology.

By simple DNA testing methods and the comparison of results, we can determine if individuals may be genetic cousins and share a common ancestor.

Thousands of people have been able to extend their family trees across generations, continents and cultures through the power of Molecular Genealogy and through tools developed by SMGF.

Please visit the Success Stories pages for examples of how Molecular Genealogy has helped others.

"If you would not be forgotten as soon as you are dead and rotten, either write things worthy of reading, or do things worthy of writing."
