Like DNA genetic testing, forensic genealogy is a fast-growing branch of genealogy. When an ancestral link is needed between the past and present, forensic genealogy may be used to assist attorneys, law enforcement, and federal and state agencies. Professional genealogists and non-professional family genealogy researchers, as well as genealogy tree builders are finding increasingly that many ancestry-related court cases require documented evidence that is held to stricter standards of proof than those accepted in “regular” genealogy cases. Demand for forensic genealogy services is on the rise from genealogists, as well as from family genealogy researchers.
Elizabeth Khan, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of RecordClick.com explains, "We were getting a lot of calls from customers who needed documentation that would be accepted as definitive proof for certain ancestry situations, such as heir and beneficiary verification, adoption confirmation, requirements for dual citizenship by jus sanguinis, and other immigration corroboration. We jumped at the chance to serve our customers by making DNA testing and forensic genealogy research services available to them."
Prior to offering forensic genealogy services, RecordClick.com added DNA testing services to its roster of research offerings. DNA analysis is one of the three most important sources of forensic genealogy, along with photo analysis, and database diving.
