Mike is a third generation genealogist with 30 years of experience.  His father-in-law, Warren F. Clark (author of Hathorn/Harthorn: The Ancestors and Descendants of William Hathorn of Cushing, Maine), greatly influenced and sparked his interest in genealogy.  Warren’s aunt, Mary French (Cheney) Clark, started the family history in 1900.  For Mike there were too many mysteries in his family, a Scottish side no one knew and an Irish side no one would talk about.  Solving these mysteries and others like them has become Mike’s passion.


Mike is a professional genealogist, writer, and speaker.  He graduated from Northeastern University with a B.S. in Engineering and has spent his career developing collaborative technologies.  As a genetic genealogist, Mike advises on the use of DNA as a tool for genealogy through his site - OriginsDNA.com.  His focus combines science and history to unravel ancestral genetic migrations.

  1. Hi Mike,
    I have recently found out my father was adopted. He has passed along with all of his family. He had a "half sister" who was 20 years older then him. She has a daughter that is still alive. When I found her she told me her mother told her that my father was adopted and that it was to be kept a secret at all cost. If we were living in the initial story she would be my half cousin. Since that is no the reality and per many of our discussions I do think her mother may have actually been my father's mother too; that would make her my aunt. Is there a DNA test for this? HELP!! gtbannon@comcast.net
