CeCe Moore


CeCe Moore is a Genetic Genealogist who has appeared on TV shows such as Finding Your Roots, 20/20, The Doctors, and CBS This Morning and is the genetic genealogy consultant for Finding Your Roots and Genealogy Roadshow . Moore was the genetic genealogist who worked with the Branum family on the Thomas Ray Lippert/University of Utah artificial insemination sperm swap case, and discovered the true identity of the man raised as Paul Fronczak. The birth parents of California foundling Kayla Tovo were also identified through Moore's work. 

As a result of discovering that her brother-in-law is a direct descendant of Thomas Jefferson and Sally Hemings after a 23andMe test revealed unexpected African ancestry, Moore founded the Hemings/Jefferson Autosomal DNA Project.
