    I doubt a parent can be identified from blood type. Unlikely possibilities can be eliminated. Using DNA (not our kind ) would be foolproof. A search of blood type info will bring up charts that show possibilities.

    I doubt blood typing would do it, but they can do reverse paternal DNA. That is where they take a sample of the Dad's DNA, and the Mom's DNA and then check all Baby Doe's and found children and see if anything matches.

    Basically they figure out what the DNA of a child by these two people would be in the lab. Nowadays they can tell what color eyes, what color hair, the gender and any genetic defects a child will have BEFORE they are even conceived. This is kind of scary to me, but I do scare easily.

    My wife and I had this option when we had Alyson. We could see what the chances were of having a Down Syndrome child or other major defect would be. We opted out of it,as it was semi-expensive and we thought we would just take what we were given. I am not sure the test would have found anything out or not,but Alyson was not a good pregnancy. 7 out of 10 months, Patty was on complete bed rest, and in the end Alyson was taken by emergency surgery. Everything worked out fine though since then, pretty healthy girl.

    Anyway, now they are extracting the DNA from a dinosaur and trying to reverse engineer it to bring back a living species. That is REAL scary!
    I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"
