According to a recent article in BuzzFeed, Family Tree DNA is now cooperating with the FBI to solve cold cases.
From their perspective, this is not a violation of their user agreement, since their database has always been open to anyone who wanted to upload a DNA profile. However, most of us uploaded our DNA with the implicit understanding that it would be used for family history, not crime fighting.
As a genealogist, I'm concerned that this will make my job more difficult. I fear people will be less likely to upload their DNA or to share identifying information.
What do you think: breach of trust or no big deal?
