  1. Thank you I would appreciate any help and information you could give. I have already started looking but was quickly shut down by the county of records. Now I don't know what my next move should be. I fear going through government channels would take years.

  5. OMG!!! I am so excited to have found you... I really need to tell my story I will try to make it brief...
    I am a twin. My twin sister is the I believe with all my heart she was taken from the hospital
    Manhattan General on 2nd avenue and 12st in NYC The hospital is no longer in existence any more.
    My mom was a very gullible and naieve lady.
    Someone from the hospital called my Mom and said
    They were sorry the twin had passed away. I have a birth certificate for her but there is NO death cert.
    Mom was hysterically crying and did not know what to do the person on the phone told my
    Mom "don't worry we will take care of everything" They never told her to come and see the baby
    They also said that Mom didn't have to pay anything at all.

    Mom was 7 month pregnant when we were born on Sept. 27,1959 I was the baby there had to watch because
    I was losing weight down to 3lbs 14oz We were in an incubator and brought over to New York women's infirmary hospital
    Lois (twin) was 5lbs 3oz and my family saw her and said she looked like she was healthy,

    I pray I find my sister Lois

    I thank you in advance for your help or even just reading this.

His name at birth was Michael Darren- he was between me and my sister Terri who was born in 1975 and I in 1978. He was born in poughkeepsie ny at Vassar brother hospital. My mother decided to give him up for adoption and then decided to keep him, he stayed with her for a few months and then she finally did give him up. My mother passed away in January and took all the info with her. I registered with albany he has not. I called social serices they have no record of my mother or brother, also tried catholic charities and they have nothing. I tried the hospital and they said alll records would be destroyed after 21 years.HELLPPPPP...please...my email is sindygreen915@gmail.com

  13. Hi-my name is Lisa, I am helping my mother find her bio family. She sent out for her records to the PA deparment of public welfare, and we sent out a letter to the PA Adoption registry to a Karen Sterner, but unfortunatly that letter came back as not deliverable as addressed. We looked at the address on the form and it matches what we placed on the envelope. So we do not know where the Adoption registry for Pa is. Some info on my mom's adoption: Betty Sue Tylavsky is her name after adoption she was born on 7/23/1962. Her adoption cirtificate says place of birth was Pitsburgh PA Aleghaney county. The doctor name listed is Kelvin B. Johnson. It dosnt give weight or time of birth. It is so small it looks like a car title. The file number on her cirtificate does not follow the normal digits for PA Births. We are very confused about that. If you or anyone could help us, we would gladly appriciate it. We have her registerd with irrs xchange and a few other adoption registry's. Thank you- we can be reached via email at savoie1982@yahoo.com

  14. I'm not sure where to turn at this point. I was adopted by my step-dad in 1983 when I was 2 years old in Dayton, Ohio. My mother and I are not speaking at this point because every time I try to ask her about my birth father, she changes the story and/or his name. I have filed petitions with the court in Dayton to get first the non-identifying information, which states that there are 2 names listed: one is the "putative father" and the other is the "natural father." I am now waiting on the identifying information. I have done searches online for other adoptees like me, who were adopted by a step-parent and are searching for their birthparent; without luck. Any guidance or info would be greatly appreciated.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Kelli ~~ I wish I could be optimistic about your ability to get the name, but the courts, unfortunately, are just not cooperative or forthcoming with truth and justice when it comes to adopted persons. All is not lost, however. We are finding many families now through DNA testing and matching. In particular, we recommend the "Family Finder" test at www.familytreedna.com. This will give you your ethnic heritage plus match you with relatives, from close to distant cousins, who are in the close to half a million participants in the database. There is also help available at the support group AdoptionDNA on Yahoo groups and another support group for adoptees at FamilyTreeDNA. Please don't hesitate to email me for more information.

  17. Hi, My sister ad I are both adopted and she has done years of work to no avail. She gave the agency to get my copies of my adoption file and through extraordinary work she found a lot of excellent evidence for my birth mother. If what has been found my birth mother passed away a number of years ago. We do have info on her children. Would the script that I have read be the same formula in contacting them or somewhat different. Also we have a long shot at a possible birth father. Which direction do you think would be the best first step, the Father or the children of the Mother?

    We have an adoptee on the Adoptee Rights Facebook page who is searching for his mother.
    He FOUND her name and his name at birth because it was listed on Jeff's Tribute Necklace post on the ARC website for the Adoptee Rights Coalition. We

    are in contact with him. It's a 1970 NY adoption.
    HE did not add his name and hers., but SOMEONE did. It HAD to have come from within the community. One of US KNOWS this mother!!!
    Who knows Charlene Hoare?
    Jamison M. Hoare is waiting for you!!

Hello Prisilla,I used to be a physho mess.You were telling people the honest truth the whole time.As sort of a new comer and with rage that had built up through the many false searchers and their greed I didn't see what truth was out there being it you.So sorry for my so called thought I knew it all,just learning and was tramatized from the beginning and to have the same agent do the same as the demons that use people for money,I tried Search Quest and she stuttered as she found she couldn't get my money and she met her match with the social worker both liars with attitude.I found others lost money ,boy have I had crow and I hate the taste of it .I pray you continue to be there for mothers and adoptees ,we,they need you,no joke.I'm still learning and getting more education as I can as one day this social worker will never say to a mother what occupation her son is -Lawyer then saying at closing he could have been one so she could brag on his adoptive older parents.I'm probably a grandmother by him.Still miss my son that was killed in 2011 when a truck hit him,my best friend.I want Open Acess for all Adoptees,thank you as others thank you for giving us more how to information,you are the number one to be trusted.My mind is back and I am always going to be civil minded especially to search angels ,hope to see you on tv one day !<3 ArlineHunter386@gmail.com

I realize you were going through a tremendous amount of grief with the loss of your son to adoption, then the tragic death of your second son, and your brother-in-law being so ill. It's understandable you would be "beside yourself" at times. You are an incredibly strong lady to withstand all these traumas and turmoil. We love you and want only good things for you.

    2. Hey Simon,

      I dated Thomas all the way from 15-16 to early 20's. We moved to Alabama when I was about 21 and I ended up moving home without him. Your Mom wasn't in Thomas or Alfonso's life then. Thomas hadn't seen her since he was little. Alfonso raised him. They now live in Alabama. Thomas was born on 11-11-80 I believe. He still lives in Florence Alabama. I hope this helps you atleast find your half brother. I had no idea you existed! I talked to him via Facebook last year. He deleted his account and there is a bogus account of him that someone made messing around with him. He generallu contacts me everytime he makes one though.

  23. Hi--my name is Susan. I reunited with my birth mother and 4 siblings 9-18-12 on the phone and f2f on 9-29-12. I would like some ideas on how to find my birth father. His name is Dennis Williams. He was born in/around 1945. He is 5'7, medium build/height/weight and very dark in complexion. He lived in Bronx,NY possibly on Brown Place. He was a high school graduate, Roman Catholic, and a Vietnam Vet. He spent time in NY Veterans Memorial Hospital, NY, NY for seizure disorder. I was given a phone number and address from Omni Trace, which turned out to be wrong. I was given a "corrected" address and another contact number. At this number I spoke to a Dennis Williams of Jamaican decent...my birth father is not Jamaican. I now have no idea where to go. I am very blessed/lucky to have the information I have, but "Williams" is such a common last name...so I'm stuck.
    If you have any suggestions I would greatly appreciate it.

  25. Hi, AnnMarie ~ Unfortunately, as you probably know, the NYC Birth Index does not give the *adopted* name, so that information is of no use to us except to verify a match when you do find him (should match the numbers on his amended birth certificate).

    Most importantly, sign up on the KY registry

    Contact the agency or attorney that handled the adoption and ask if they have a reunion program.

    Replies
    1. Hi, Torri ~~ Unfortunately, without a name it is nearly impossible for find anyone. Your only hope, IMO, is DNA. I would recommend you start with www.23andme.com. For $100, you will get genetic markers, medical markers and be placed in the database and matched to relatives from close to distant cousins. By building a family tree for your maternal line, you can compare your matches and hopefully distinguish whether they are related to your mother or father. There are several groups on Yahoo to help guide you in the process, including AdoptionDNA and DNA-NEWBIE.
      Best of luck!

  31. Hi! I was given your name from Lynn Johansenn.

    I would like to help my mom find her mother's daughter and her father's son. Mom is 73 and she never imagined that it would be possible to find any kind of information about her brother and sister.

    My grandma and grandpap weren't married at this time.

    I just came across the hospital discharge announcement for my grandma and the baby's discharge from the hospital when I was doing some genealogy searches.

    For the longest time, we knew she had to have been born between 1930 and 1935 (My grandma was still living at home with her parents when the 1930 Census was compiled and in 1935 she and grandpap were married).

    Family lore has grandma's dad kicked her out of the family home when she got pregnant out of wedlock. A local family took her in during this time and she lived with them for 1 1/2 - 2 years with the baby girl. But things were tough during the great depression and grandma took her to the Children's Home. Not sure if she was placed for adoption or not but in 1935, when grandma and grandpap married they went to get her from the Children's Home and they were told she had been adopted or placed in foster care.

    I've had a photo copy of my grandpap's son's original hand-written birth certificate for several years. I know the child's mother and several of his siblings and I straight out asked if they had a son/brother born in 1935.

    The child's mother said that there were several other girls in the community with the same name as her. That she was not the one. I have researched this. They have different middle names.

    It's mom's greatest wish to meet her brother and sister.

  36. I am a 70 year old adoptee. Born Bronx, NYC 12/18/43. I have spent several decades trying to learn knowledge of my biological parentage... identifying information, not the limited non-identifying information. I've done everything conceivable, including getting non-ID info., petitioning the courts for health reasons (after 8 years, they finally denied my petition), DNA testing with the family I think is my birth family -- mixed results, but I'm convinced this should be my mother's family. I have a rare birth name, so it was fairly easy to find this family.

    My question is twofold. 1) I read a long time ago that the laws in New York permit an adoptee to have records unsealed at age 75, but I cannot determine if this is true, and not sure where I read this. And 2) If I want to appeal the judge's decision re: my petition to the court, is that possible? I believe the court-appointed "guardian ad litum" was a fraud; she never did the research she was assigned, and dropped the ball for years. Then the judge who was originally assigned to my case retired, and the new judge didn't care.

    I simply want closure, nothing more (and nothing less!). More details if you think you can help, and thanks!

    Sincerely,
    Susan Sackett (Born in Bronx, New York, living in Scottsdale, AZ)

  40. Hello Priscilla my name is Valerie and this will I hope be easy for you.I found my mom and dad after looking for them since I was 19. Last year.I found them through another search angel who gave me information on my dad but not my mom. They're both remarried and live on Long Island about 10 miles from each other. The search angel was very closed mouthed about my mom and said there was'nt much info about her and I tried to contact the angel and she would'nt talk to me so I did some research and got her address but I can't find her phone number. My mom was 14 and my dad was 15 and now I'll be 60 in October. There's a little more that I know about but I was wondering if you might be able to get her number if you have the time.This is my first time on this website so I hope that you might consider me.

As we are now retired trips to NYC to the library are kind of out of the question and I am not good on the computer for searching etc. Also my husband has 2 names listed for his birth certificate both first and middle are the same just 2 different last names!! Man in geneology dept in NYC said he had been there 30+ years and had never seen that before. More roadblocks. thanking you in advance, nancy

  48. Good evening,

    My husband and I recently had a baby(7 months ago) and were really curious how we can go about finding out his birth mothers medical information?
    She put him up for adoption and died less than a year after of some sort of illness that neither of us knows of but really would love to know more about.

    thanks in advance for your help
    Jenni

  49. Searching for any birth/blood relatives of Stephen Wright Tackitt, who was adopted. He was born on 11/17/1942 and passed away on 02/02/1999. I, Michelle Gordon (Tackitt) am his daughter. Stephen lived and grew up in Bloomington Indiana and was adopted by Sylvan Wright Tackitt and Elizabeth Tackitt when he was either born or very young. We would just like to know at least the background and/or medical info of the blood/birth side of the family and let them know that Stephen passed away. Please contact me, Michelle, at mickiebon @ sbcglobal .net

  50. I have promised my son that I would help with his search to find his biological parents. He was born in Oneida County, New York and has gotten his "non identifying" info from the state. H was born October 12,1967 and was placed with Oneida County for adoption. He was 7 weeks old when we got him. We were advised to sign with the registry, about 30 years ago, as that was the only way for both biological parents and children could find each other. Nothing came of it. My son has never stopped his search (unlike his sister, who did not really care who the biological parents were). He is thinking about hiring a detective, which he can not really afford as he has a wife and 2 sons.
    Could you please offer some help for his search?☺️

  51. Hello Priscilla, I just sent you an email. I am trying to find my family. My half sis and I have different fathers but the same mother. Neither of us know our bio dads. We have tried searching Ancestry and FTDNA and GEDmatch to no avail! I can send you more personal information in another email. Thank you for your time and your help would truly be appreciated!

  57. Hi Priscilla,

    I was born in 1957 at Philadelphia General Hospital. My given birth name is Keith Dimyris Walker. I learned I was adopted only a few years ago on Mother's Day 2014. My wife and I were researching my lineage in hopes to find my origins so I'd know what color kilt I was going to wear in a friend's wedding that was to take place in Scotland 2015. We both took the DNA tests from Ancestry.com.

    I had been told, growing up, that I was part Black and part American Indian. I believed it made sense and gave me reason as to why my skin was lighter and my hair was straighter than many one else in the family. This story goes on but we can discuss that later ini detail.

    I was raised as an only child by a loving, and many times over-doting mother. Her husband died when I was two years old so I never got to know him. I was always told about how she carried me when she was pregnant with me and this was the story she would tell me over and over again. Yes, there were inklings of stories going around that I was adopted but there was also the silence I heard whenever it came to talking about me. But my mother's story would always be the same so I put anything dealing with a possibility of being adopted out of my head.

    Once I found the real story, I have received the non-identifying and identifying information on my birth mother but nothing about my birth father was to be found......yet. I have found my siblings from my birth mother and as I meet more family I try to learn a bit more. I did find more information that may lead me to my birth father or his identity. I am on this journey to the end but now I may need some help.

    I was given your name and blog from one of my DNA cousins and someone he reached out to on my behalf. I hope you may find some time to lend a hand to help me along my journey.

    Kind regards,
    James
