Investigative Genetic Genealogy (IGG) Services

Use forensic genealogy on your most difficult cases to unlock investigative leads.

We use extracted DNA or biological evidence from your case, to create a DNA “profile” that can then be uploaded into our FamilyTreeDNA database for genetic matching purposes.

What is Forensic Genealogy?

Forensic Genealogy is the utilization of Genetic Genealogy, genetic analysis in combination with traditional genealogy research, to help solve a crime. Our team utilizes genetic matching within the FamilyTreeDNA database to identify individuals who may be related to an unknown sample to help identify the identity of the unknown DNA.

Cases We Provide Services For

Gene By Gene and FamilyTreeDNA provide forensic genealogy services to law enforcement for homicide or sexual assault or to identify the human remains of a deceased individual.

Running this profile matching can save time and money with our investigative techniques. This testing is ultimately benefiting public safety.
