Genetic Genealogists Seymour spoke with ABC's Robin Roberts about the latest cold-case solved by using genealogy and a database CC, let me let me, begin with you you were able. To narrow down to two brothers one is Now behind bars explained, how you, go. About doing this so we're looking for people who share a significant stretches of DNA with the suspect we find them in the database jed match and then we reverse. The, family we reverse engineer the, family tree of, the suspect based on the. Family trees of the people that are sharing DNA with him comedy cases have you been working on and are are continuing to work on, I worked on. About, a, dozen so far but I have many more cases waiting for my attention so I expect that we will see lots. More arrests thanks to genetic genealogy I. Know a lot of families are hoping for that. CC Dan In this case to the. Suspect confessed and you find that a lot of these cases where you're able to use DNA evidence and they can present that to suspect and say look we now have your DNA there's now.

That concern actually genetic genealogy is capable of really eliminating hundreds or even thousands of people from consideration the cases I've been working on. Often have had suspect lists our person of interest lists with hundreds or, thousands of names on them. In genetic genealogy were able to narrow it down to just a handful two or maybe one person, so it's actually helping much less a number of innocent people being investigated for these crimes that's ABC's Robin, Roberts with Dan Abrahams and see Seymour.
