Things to keep in mind
Don’t assume that your biological family doesn’t care for you or doesn’t want to see you. Instead, carry out your search with a rational mind and open heart. It is advisable to avoid preconceived expectations while reconnecting with family. Try to be empathetic and open to the various forms your reunion may take. Be sensitive to the feelings of your birth family and their loved ones who may be affected by the reunion.
Begin your search
Can I not get a copy of my birth certificate from a government agency and search elsewhere using my parent’s name?
While that is a possibility, you need to make sure the name on your birth or baptismal is actually your parent’s, because sometimes a close relative or stepfather’s name is used on these records. Also, some regions do not disclose birth details for adoptees.
What happens after I register?
During your registration we ask you ten simple questions. The answers you give to these questions will be instantly compared with more than 1,003,317 profiles, giving you a report of how many profiles match your responses and to what extent.
