The main purpose of our site is to assist adoptees on their search for their birth family. We always have at least twenty open cases at a time assisting individuals on what could only be described as their incredible journey. We do not charge any fee for searching for your birth family. However, we will prioritize your case over others, if you choose to purchase one of our "paced" or "dedicated" one-year subscription levels of service.
NOTE: If you are a birth mother, father or sibling looking for biological family relinquished to adoption, please contact us first before looking into paying any fee for heightened level of search services.

How long does it take?
While each search for birth family is unique, many ask how long it will take. It depends on many factors, but on average a birth parent is usually found within the first year of a search that can include autosomal DNA testing, some background information and possibly a non-identifying information document from the State of birth adoption agency who handled your case.
What is our success rate?
Our cases vary from adoptees looking for their birth parents to children of adopted parents, or even grandparents, who are looking to identify their birth families. Some adoptees come to us who already found one birth parent, but have been unable to find the other.
There are very few people who start a search and actually stop trying to bring it to conclusion. So it is hard to actually say how many searches ever really fail to produce results. However, if we were to say how many cases have we solved over the past two years vs. how many are still open, the chart below can give you a clearer picture.
What better way to describe our success than to hear it directly from those who we have helped. Take a look at our testimonials page to understand the impact it has made.

ASSOCIATION OF PROFESSIONAL GENEALOGISTS
We do our best to assist others on their genealogy efforts online. Much of our expertise is researching digital content at Ancestry.com, Familysearch.org and other dependable online resources.
We strongly encourage anyone delving into their familial past to take an autosomal DNA test. While documentation can certainly help provide the foundation of researching your family, science has come a long way in substantiating facts from fiction. It can also help us leap beyond brick walls where documentation is just not available to help prove your lineage.
