WikiTree Adoption Angels are volunteers who have taken on the mission of helping adoptees, people with unknown parents, and birth families look for and connect with each other.
We have 2 types of Angels:
If you would like to help adoptees, have signed our Honor Code and have been an active member of WikiTree for at least 3 months, click on "ANSWER" to post below and we'll get you going!
We especially need Angels from around the world who understand how to use DNA in the process of finding birth family.
Hi Bob. We can't work with you on someone else's behalf unless we get their permission or they complete the application themselves. If you believe they will give permission, you can go ahead and fill out the application (first item under the Help tab at the top of this screen). But the short answer is, yes we can help.
I am not sure if I am posting in the right place, but I am looking for help to find my great grandfather. (my father's maternal grandfather) Until I did a DNA test I thought I knew who he was, but the test disproved this because I have no match with children of his second wife who he married after my great Grandmother died (I match with her children)
I Know https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Hall-13551 my Gt. Grandmother married
2 years after my grandmother was born but she and all the family thought he was her birth father. I am looking for the birth father of https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Hall-13679
Can anyone help me find him please?
I still have Reeves-2005 as her father on the tree but have marked him non biological.
Any help or suggestions as to how to go about this would be much appreciated.
I'd be happy to help with research. I have access to many resources and I've helped several others find their family history, including persons who were adopted.
I have several Adoptees in family. I added stuff to this one only proof I have he’s adopted is 1880 census which I have added for project review. Not sure if you want to reword any this on profile but it all I have. His brother was also adopted. I was told in family maybe the biological parents were in family but no one has confirmed this. The family surnames do appear. Maybe the adoption group can find more.
