I am adopted and have NO clues about my birth except a sort of "fake" birth certificate from when I was born in Texas. No family name. No known blood relatives. Would the DNA test be a good option for me anyway? What will I learn about my family from taking a DNA test? ~ Rita M.
The short answer to your first question is "yes, absolutely:" An adopted person can -- sometimes -- be fortunate enough to find the identity of their biological mother and father through one of the major commercial DNA tests available today. And the answer to your second question is "quite a lot."
