What place and exact date of birth.Do you know parents name.

If your sibling also were adopted,unless you know there

adopted names.Did you contact your local adoption agency.

This is extremely difficult.
Welcome to WikiTree, JoAnn! There are those here who assist adoptees in their search for their birth family. They can't give you names or information about living individuals, but they can give you ideas on how to proceed. I gained a new cousin a couple of years ago who was finally successful in finding her biological father (one of my uncles.) She took a DNA test at Ancestry and began contacting her close matches. It was very exciting for her and for me and we have a good relationship. I wish you success in your pursuit and hope it turns out to be a happy experience for all of you.

Not sure of how to get started with it I would want to be helped but I don't know what information you need from me to get to that point . i did take a DNA test a while ago on Ancestry  it was a surprise but i liked my results  who would be my contact so if someone could help me out it would be great



Hi JoAnn ... perhaps the best way to get you started would be to request help from a Mentor. You can find them here

Hopefully they might be able to help.
