Advances in commercial DNA technology, combined with traditional genealogical research methods, creates powerful tools for solving your family history mysteries.
Twisted Roots Genealogical Services is committed to helping people who are seeking biological family – because of an adoption, abandonment or long-held family secrets. 
Or maybe you just want to spend an hour or two learning what your DNA results mean. Either way, we can help.


Phyllis Codling McLaughlin has attended numerous educational opportunities to understand how DNA and traditional genealogical research can be used to solve unknown parentage and brick-wall cases.


She has successfully identified biological parents for numerous clients, most of whom had been adopted at birth. 


McLaughlin also offers consultation in genealogical research methods, and offers presentations on a variety of genealogy-related topics, including DNA 101, DNA 201, basic genealogy research methods, and identifying old photographs.

Whatever your research needs, Twisted Roots is here to help.
