MyHeritage extends DNA Quest initiative to help more adoptees find their birth families

Family history and DNA testing service MyHeritage is extending DNA Quest, a pro bono initiative to reunite adoptees with their birth families through at-home DNA testing.

The first phase of DNA Quest was launched in March 2018 and offered 15,000 free DNA kits to adoptees and those seeking to reunite with family members who were placed for adoption. This resulted in many successful reunions. Due to the large number of applicants, a waiting list of several thousand people was established after registration closed in May 2018. The next phase of DNA Quest re-opens applications on the project website (www.dnaquest.org), offering an additional 5,000 free DNA kits to eligible applicants from all countries. Preference is given to applicants who are unable to afford genetic testing
