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