  • Adopted, I Found Birth Father's Family thru FTDNA

    I completed a 26-year search for my biological roots through DNA testing. A Y-DNA test through FTDNA was the second of three test types that I used. My story was covered in the Wall Street Journal on 5/2/09. Here are some links.

    Great success Richard!

    Wonderful success!

    Maybe I missed this but have you connected with your biological relatives?

    Cheers,

      By the time I learned the identity of my birth parents, they had been dead for a long time. But the good news is the siblings and other relatives that welcomed me so warmly.

      I have a brother on my mother's side that I have known since 1981. Now, thanks to DNA testing, I have a new brother and sister on my father's side.

          Thank you for the nice comment.

          Yesterday, I attended a family reunion for my new family (my third). In addition to seeing many of my cousins from Michigan, my sister flew up from Texas. I still have my adopted family and now both branches of my biological family.

          I feel blessed.

            Richard

            Congrates on locating your birthfathers family and siblings I am in the same boat you are I was adopted out at 3 weeks old- I found my birthmother in 1994 in Fort Worth,TX I just conducted my DNA test to locate my birthfather and with FTDNA I think I found him. I am 42 years old

            Regards

              Brooks,

              I am happy that genetic genealogy has helped you locate your birth father. If he is alive and willing, you may wish to confirm his role through a paternity test. If he is deceased but has children, you may need to do what I did and try a DNA sibling test.

              As you know, I told my story in detail to help other adoptees on my web site at DNA Testing Adviser. Please let me know if you are successful. I am thinking of adding a section on other success stories.

              Richard
