The DNA Doe Project is an exciting new initiative that uses genetic genealogy to identify John and Jane Does. We have become a go-to organization for law enforcement agencies and medical examiners across the country, helping them solve their most intractable cases. Our innovative DDP Fund program allows smaller and less-well-funded agencies to take advantage of our services. We have had amazing success even with cases where the DNA was highly degraded or of low quantity.
We are an all-volunteer organization that has attracted some of the best genetic genealogists in the industry, all working towards the common goal of reuniting John and Jane Does with their families.
