Do you need help with a DNA mystery?

About Me…

My name is Catherine Hughes. I’m a Genetic Genealogist with over five years’ experience of solving DNA mysteries. I’ve helped find answers for hundreds of people including:

  • adoptees
  • people searching for their unknown Father
  • foundlings
  • people who were donor conceived
  • and those who have received unexpected DNA results.

Can I help you with your DNA search?

If I am able to offer general advice and guidance on your search, or work with you on a one-to-one basis, I would be delighted to do so.

I specialise in searches involving families in England and most US states, but I’m always happy to respond to questions about any aspect of DNA searches.

Unfortunately, I cannot guarantee to help with every search. If I’m not the right person to help you I may be able to point you in the direction of someone who can.


I believe that everyone has the right to learn about their family, so have chosen to work on a pay-what-you-can / pay-what-you-want basis. If you find my service of value and are able to make a payment, I would be pleased to accept contributions via PayPal.


Please feel free to contact me. The button below will take you to the Contact Form where you’ll find details of the information I require in order to discuss your search.
