  • Using mtDNA to ID bio parents; adoption

    Here's the deal: My mother's father's mother, my great grandmother, was adopted. Her biological parents were entirely unknown to her and her adoptive parents. Until now my strategy has been to search the 1910 census for households with a child matching her name and age, and then follow that family to...

    Adoptee & 2nd Cousins Question

    I have been working for the last year with one of my matches who is an adoptee, we are estimated by Family Finder to be 3rd cousins and we are each other's closest FF match. I have tested a number of my family members and found three who test as 2nd cousins with the adoptee on the FF test. Two (cousins...

    Colombian Adoptee in search of missing siblings (two found so far)

    Good morning all:

    Firstly, I'm elated to report that through FTDNA I found a probable 2nd cousin (perhaps 3rd cousin). That happened exactly one year ago. I had long since given up on finding any family - then after the FF cousin match I restarted once more the full fledge search. I subsequently...

    New ISOGG Forum for Adoptees

    I want to thank Family Tree DNA for setting up this forum.

    The International Society of Genetic Genealogy (ISOGG) has also launched a new Yahoo Group: ISOGG Adoptees. Check out that one too.

    A New Overview of DNA Testing

    I just created an easy-to read DNA testing guide that you can download for free.

    My DNA Testing Adviser web site has a lot of useful information for genealogists, adoptees and others. Yet I felt an overview was needed to put the different DNA tests in perspective.

    I describe...

    FF for adoption barriers

    Just want to give a word of encouragement to fellow adoptees. I had the SuperDNA package plus deep clade work done so that I might have more of a clue as to my heritage. All the people who had known my connection to my birth parents...were dead. Somewhat miraculously, on 6/25/10, I managed to break...

    What are your expectations as an adoptee

    I am really having to ratchet back my expectations. First, the joy as an adoptee of finding real blood relatives for the first time in my life.
    Then, I realize that for people who were not adopted, and who have lived all their lives knowing who their relatives are do not necessarily get excited...

    Adoption Secrets Busted

    My wife was adopted, but if you asked her adoptive family you would only find denials. The evidence for adoption was strong, but without any help or admission, finding the truth was slim to none.

    Then, we tried Family Finder.

    Over the weekend, after spending a lot of time...

  • Family Finder Helps Adoptees Find Birth Parents

    I found my birth father's surname through a Y-DNA test in 2007. Once I figured out who he was, he was already deceased. So I used a DNA sibling test with his son and some cousins to confirm he was the one. But I was lucky.

    Many people have sent me sibling test results that are simply...

  • 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.
