Dawn Kosmakos is a genetic genealogist living in the San Francisco Bay Area, in California. In 2012, she took a DNA test for fun and accidentally discovered that the father who raised her was not her biological father. Having many years experience working on her own genealogy, she then learned to use DNA clues from Ancestry and 23andMe test results to build her paternal biological family tree. In early 2016 she was able to successfully identify and reunite with her biological father. After that, she became passionate about helping others with similar stories and has been solving unknown parentage searches ever since.
