Our work isn’t possible without generous supporters like you.
We keep the costs to our law enforcement and medical examiner partners low with your help. Your monthly gift will make it possible for DNA Doe Project to take all the cases that come to us in 2024. Please become a monthly donor today.
Together, we can help bring them home.
Since our founding in 2017, DNA Doe Project has worked on more than 200 cases of unidentified remains. Among our success stories are the very first identifications made using investigative genetic genealogy.
At DNA Doe Project, we don’t just take on the ‘easy’ cases — we accept those from every community, regardless of circumstance, racial or gender identity, or cause of death. It can take months or years to identify these individuals, but we don’t give up. We believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to maintain their name and identity, even in death. We work every day to make that reality.
This month, we feature the case of Transgender Julie Doe, which is now our oldest case in research. Our dedicated team of volunteer investigative genetic genealogists have been working on her case since 2019.

“Everyone is someone’s child and has family, no matter what path their life has followed. I feel we’ve become almost caretakers for these lost souls until they can be returned to their family.”
