I wanted to take the time to weigh in on a topic that may be on the docket in the Utah Legislature in the next legislative session. The legislation seeks to severely (or even completely) restrict searches of Genetic Genealogy databases.
My personal opinion is this. If I knowingly consent and "opt in" to allow law enforcement to use my information.. if I want to do everything I can to help solve these cold cases and knowingly and without any reservation upload my genetic genealogy information to the GEDMatch database, I should have the right to do so.
What are your thoughts? What is your opinion? Weigh in!! Let's work together to find the "right solution" and lets make sure our legislators know how we feel!
