Your search for biological family
Performing a search to find birth family is challenging. It requires patience, zeal, and a willingness to learn about new technology and search techniques that can widen the possibility of substantiating the most likely location of biological related family. Understand that our volunteers are skilled at finding adoptee's birth family through both traditional search and genetic genealogy. We simply do not have the tools nor access to legally unseal birth records to find the children relinquished to adoption for birth parents or their siblings. If you happen to be a birth parent or sibling of an adoptee, please check their State of birth for what legal rights you might have or may currently be in legislation for change here.
When it comes to adoptees, we certainly do bring to the table an understanding about genetic genealogy, thorough first hand experience regarding DNA testing with third party companies, which enlightens us about an adoptees biological cousins; the very bread crumbs leading to birth parents. In one way or another all of our volunteers are touched by adoption and it deepens our dedication and sensitivity in regard to putting so much effort the genealogy of our clients.
This website is a mirror to the tenacity required by all the search angels, who have spent countless hours helping adoptees with their searches for their biological family. Moving forward is never easy, but with a lot of encouragement, shared sentiment from fellow adoptees, and your commitment to stay the course, anything becomes possible.
While it can become unnecessary for an adoptee to become too deeply involved in a search, some decide to become more actively involved. In those cases we encourage folks to consider getting an month-to-month subscription to Ancestry. If you prefer to evaluate the documentation our researchers accumulate, you are encouraged to take advantage of an Ancestry14-day trial to be more involved with your search first hand. It is also a good idea to plan to take an AncestryDNA test, as working your case will only be that much faster to identify actual biological relatives. That is especially true if your search starts with next to no knowledge of your birth family.
Who we are and what we do
Whether this search involves you, an adopted family member or someone you think might benefit from our services, the only way to know more is to pass along this information to others. Everyone touched by some kind of family separation, may decide later in life, to try and pickup the pieces or find closure in one way or another.
It is our belief that everyone deserves to know where they came from and who their ancestors were. To further this cause we have gathered together a dedicated and skilled group of genetic genealogists to assist in this task and help resolve mysteries that have lasted a lifetime. Rekindling hope and bringing clarity to a search for biological family is not a skill most adoptees ever imagined performing. Yet years of wondering where they started and just what nature has contributed to them biologically, can finally come to a conclusion.
