Eric Migdal is an 11-year resident of Pompton Lakes NJ. He has been doing family history research for 30 years, assisting clients with family tree building, DNA test analysis, safely and effectively contacting unknown family members. As an adoptee, Eric spent many years searching for his biological family with very few results. His starting information was wrong and the assumptions he made were also incorrect. Finally, DNA testing helped Eric find the truth about his birth family.
