Forensic genealogy has emerged as a powerful tool for solving cold cases by identifying John and Jane Does or perpetrators of violent crime where traditional law enforcement techniques have not been able to provide leads. While media coverage has drawn attention to the ability of the technique for clearing cases sometimes decades old, there is still a lack of understanding within the forensic community on how that is accomplished, or who can or should be doing it. Law enforcement agencies and the public must become educated on forensic genealogy practices to develop realistic expectations of what the techniques can and can’t accomplish, what pitfalls may arise, and how to increase the chances of a successful collaborative identification.
