    I wondered about that too because my next question to NAMUS was was the DNA sample from a blood relative? Did they have the same one or two parents? How do these organization verify that the person is indeed the relative (and not an imposter)? These questions are what is lingering inside my head. If I had them answered, then I would feel reassured, but I don't. These tests leave no room for error but I can't help but have these doubts. Donetwork said they would be in contact with me, if there are any changes. I have to wait, and see.

    Wow. I was confident Steven would be a match. The resemblance is remarkable.
    I hope Steven is still alive if our Pete Doe is not a match.

    Thanks for the update Flanders Fields and your continued efforts to ID Pete.

    I hadn't thought of that, and that is a good question.

    I did emailed NAM.US about that possibility because I am interested in how these possibilities are dealt with when it comes to identifying people. Just want to be certain, but I do think they do a thorough job. I will post their response when I receive it. Thanks.

    I'm pretty sure if they adopted him, and then were asked for DNA to make a comparison, they would have said, "Oh, he's not our biological child."

    I agree, they do a wonderful job but mistakes can happen. Thanks Flanders, I'm interested to know what they say.

    Good point SheWho. It's something I hadn't thought of before regarding a missing person
    being an adoptee.
