About Marc McDermott

I’m Marc McDermott, an investigative genetic genealogist fueled by an unwavering passion for genealogy. As a dedicated member of the National Genealogical Society and an active volunteer for the DNA Doe Project, I’m committed to utilizing my expertise to create a meaningful impact in the field.

My work centers around utilizing genealogy to tackle complex cases involving DNA, allowing me to provide answers and closure to families and communities grappling with tragic circumstances. By volunteering at the DNA Doe Project, a non-profit that employs state-of-the-art genetic genealogy methods to identify unidentified remains, I strive to impact society positively.

Separately, I also offer assistance to law enforcement agencies for cases related to violent crimes, employing my knowledge and experience in genetic genealogy to help identify suspects of violent crimes and solve cold cases. Helping bring justice to victims and their families is an honor, and I find immense fulfillment in making a tangible difference in people’s lives through my expertise.

My writings have been featured on websites like Ancestry.com, MyHeritage, and the International Symposium on Human Identification (ISHI).

Through this website, I aim to demystify complex genealogy-related topics, aiding fellow enthusiasts in uncovering their family histories while sharing my research experiences.
