We offer a FREE and No Obligation assessment of the details you have, and the possibility of a successful search. If the assessment is successful - that is, if we find further information to further the search that enables us to find your birth relative, you will then be offered our full search service.

Tracing people is a time consuming and meticulous task which requires experience and the necessary search tools. This service has been set up to provide an inexpensive way of tracing birth relatives.  It ensures that there are no escalating or hidden charges in the event of a difficult or prolonged search as it is a fixed fee.  Every avenue available is searched. 

Your Search is undertaken by a personal researcher, focused on your search, and with at least ten years personal and professional experience of searching for birth relatives in adoption.  They therefore understand the significance of the search. Your researcher will remain in contact with you regularly through email, where you will be encouraged to ask any questions you may have or share any thoughts.

A search is considered successful when one of the following has been met:
1.  The named birth relative is found and a current name and address is provided in a report
2.  The named birth relative has passed away and a final resting place/or death certificate is found/or a next of kin has been located
3.  A third party who can contact the named birth relative via an intermediary is found e.g. in the event of emigration.

You will receive updates and reports as the search progresses, concluding in a full report detailing all the work that has been undertaken and where possible, to include any details of other birth relatives  i.e siblings

All searches remain confidential.

It may have taken you a long time to come to the important decision of tracing a birth relative, which is why this service undertakes searches with care and ensures that all avenues available are meticulously checked and searched.

This service specialises in searching for birth relatives separated through adoption and not missing persons or family tree work, which ensures an extremely high success rate.
