DNA testing has opened a world of amazing possibilities for so many people around the world. From helping adoptees find their birth parents to helping the criminal justice system solve crimes and mysteries. There can be so much joy and self-discovery in DNA testing but these results can also bring up some very important ethical dilemmas forcing critical choices for people to make as per our theme of this show.
Joining me today on the podcast to discuss all about DNA testing and those choices that come with it is Mary Eberle. Mary is the founder of DNA Hunters which is a service that helps find birth parents of adoptees and others with unknown parents, grandparents, or other ancestors.
After careers as a biotech patent attorney and scientist, Mary uses this background to help solve family mysteries by analyzing DNA test results and genealogy records. Mary discusses the choices that many have to make when going through DNA testing and genealogy.
If you have ever considered using DNA testing to help you find out more information about yourself or your family, listen in to hear about some of the aspects and choices you may need to consider around this topic.
“The path that I am on is the most rewarding, satisfying, and interesting career choice that I have made.”
“When we are asking our cousins, or aunts and uncles, or grandparents to do DNA testing to help us in our genealogy, it’s really important to say ‘Okay, I’ve heard sometimes family secrets can be uncovered and sometimes there are surprises. How would you like me to handle that?’”
In this episode, you will hear:
- How Mary’s love of DNA/genetics followed her through her different career changes
- Some amazing stories of families reunited through DNA testing and genealogy
