Adoption Research and Tracing Relatives

Adoption Research

If you were adopted and would like to trace your birth family, Karen can undertake a search for you. From the smallest piece of information (perhaps just your own original birth certificate), no matter how old, a living relative can usually be found. Many adoptees have been reunited with birth relatives as a result of Karen’s research and no stone is left unturned,

Working together with a registered Adoption Support Agency the results of her research can be sent to your agency – they will then tell you what has been found and make an approach to your living relatives. If you are not currently receiving support from an agency, Karen can supply details.

The application form should be printed, completed and sent with your deposit.

Due to adoption legislation that came into force* in 2006, adoption counselling, support and intermediary services can be undertaken only by registered Adoption Support Agencies.

Tracing Relatives

Standard Search - lost touch 20 years or less
Databases for UK residents and records of births, marriages and deaths will be searched for the person you are seeking. Results will be extracted and relevant certificates ordered. Information and documents will be supplied, together with advice on how to make contact. A copy of The People Finder is available free of charge upon request with the Standard Search option. If the search is complex, or the name of the person sought is very common, a Complete Search may be required.

Complete Search
This service helps you to find a relative anywhere in the UK. A thorough investigation is carried out to locate the person you are seeking, however long ago you lost touch. Your relative will usually be contacted in advance to verify their identity, or advice can be given if you want to make direct contact. The balance will be payable upon successful completion of a Complete Search.
