Today’s episode of Research Like a Pro is an interview with Hazel Scullin, who solved an unknown parentage case in her family using DNA. Hazel is a recent graduate of Brigham Young University with a BA in Family History. She walks us through the steps she used to come to a conclusion about the father of her grandmother, Jeanie. Jeanie was born in Salt Lake City in 1943, and her biological mother was from San Diego. Using traditional genealogy research and DNA evidence, Hazel found Jeanie’s father. Listen in to find out how!
