I was delighted to read that ISP is going to focus on using genetic genealogy in focusing on cold cases. There was a special program on PBS for about six weeks, featuring CeCe Moore, a genetic genealogist, a year or so ago. I was so intrigued at how she used genealogy and DNA to solve cold cases -- over 50 cases in one year. It is sad to see so many crimes NOT solved. I applaud the decision of the ISP to do this. I sincerely hope they can solve many cold cases. This is GOOD NEWS in the time of despair, isolation, viruses, political turmoil, disasters, and all that we have faced in 2020. Thank you for printing that article.
