When I first found out about my NPE results, I panicked. I wasn’t sure where to go for help. Lucky for me, I found some sites and individuals who have really made a difference in helping me process through all of this.
If you have been impacted by an NPE results or you just want to find out more, here’s a list of sites and other sources of help.
https://blog.kittycooper.com/?s=parents+related ( A blog written by Kitty Cooper. It covers many topics related to genetics, and there is a whole post dedicated to this result)
https://genesis.gedmatch.com/v_compare_parents1.php ( Genesis site. Contains the “are your parents related” utility
https://promethease.com/ondemandagreed ( Promethease- a site taht allows you to upload your genetic data form another site like Ancestry of 23 and Me. It provides health information)
https://thednadetectives.com/ ( A great starting point for people with a NPE DNA result)
https://www.math.mun.ca/~dapike/FF23utils/roh.php ( a very technical site, but it allows you to upload a raw data file to check for ROHs)
https://isogg.org/wiki/Unexpected_results ( a clearinghouse of sorts for those who have recieved a NPE DNA result.
I will update this list as I find new sources of support. If you have any to add, please let me know.
I would like to dedicate my blog to Ms. K. Cooper and the people who worked with her to help me. I can’t express how much I appreciate their help and support.
