Locate Long Lost Relatives

Find long lost relatives using Beacon’s innovative DNA technologies combined with our comprehensive investigative experience. Our methods can identify an individual, even without any information about the person. Some of our successful locates include:

  • Find an unknown Father or Mother through analysis of your autosomal DNA.
  • Donor conceived: Our technology combined with our investigative experience can locate even anonymous donors.
  • Long lost siblings: We have tracked down many siblings who were separated due to foster care, adoptions or other traumatic events.

Our Genealogical Team

Dennis Forrester, Beacon’s President, has over 20 years of experience as a private investigator and has conducted investigations throughout the U.S. During his career he has successfully located thousands of fact witnesses, missing persons, or other persons of interest for law firms, law enforcement agencies, the U.S. military, and private citizens alike.

Dennis has worked extensively on matters such as biological family locates, probate/heirship cases, alternative causation in toxic tort claims (genetic related medical conditions), and conducting genealogy on behalf of the U.S. Department of Defense, to identify DNA donor’s for the identification and repatriation of U.S. Services Member’s remains, to their respective families.

Our genetic genealogist has 22 years of experience in traditional genealogy and additional hands-on experience in the field of genetic genealogy. She is also a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists and the International Society of Genetic Genealogy. ​

A Winning Combination

By combining traditional genealogy with autosomal DNA analysis, and our extensive investigative skills, we have succeeded in solving hundreds of unknown parentage cases. This experience along with our ability to think “outside the box” and to understand the “big picture” can help solve the most difficult cases. Contact us today at 800-535-2136 to take the next step.
