Maurice Gleeson – Autosomal DNA, Adoptees, & Finding Long Lost Irish Relatives (Part 1)
In this hour long video, Dr. Maurice Gleeson talks about using autosomal DNA and tools developed in the US to help adoptees find their birth families. He discusses using GEDMatch and GEDCOM.com I didn’t realize until I watched this that Ancestry DNA didn’t accept DNA from people outside the US. Dr. Gleeson used DNA tests to help break through brick walls and confirm relationships with ancestors in Ireland and Australia. He shows how without DNA he wouldn’t have ever been able to confirm an ancestor.
