Family Tree DNA in the News

Family Tree DNA has changed their privacy policy.  If you have a test with them, you will need to look at the privacy policy and make sure your settings are the way you want them.  They have been cooperating with law enforcement without a court order or without giving informed consent to participants in their database.  It is not our position to tell you whether that is good or bad but to give you information so that you can educate yourself as to what and how they are doing so. You can read some articles on the Legal Genealogist’s blog about it. The link will take you to her home page and once there you can search for the topic DNA and her articles on the topic will come up.
