I hear of people who were able to find their birth parents if they know their names or something about them. However, what if you don't know anything about your birth parents? Does anyone know if there is a way to find information about ones birth parents if you don't know anything about them?

We work in genealogy and now we are using more and more DNA studies to determine who belongs to what family. I don't know if your parents could be found but maybe the family you belong to could. I take it you are female which makes it a little more expensive to use this science. MTDNA is the process used for females. Try the internet and see what is said about this there. Blessings

Unless someone could tell you what hospital you were born in you really would not have much to go on. If you knew for sure what day you were born on and in what hospital you could probably do some digging and track down some possibles.

You should be able to get the info from the hospital you were born. The adoption agency your family used or something like that. There has to be a record of it somewhere. You should have no problem getting your hands on this information if your adoption was not a closed adoption.

I think you may be able to go to the hospital of your birthplace and they may be able to look into their records and tell you. You may also be able to ask your adoptive parents if they had to go through the legal system and if they did, they may have record of your birth parents on file before you were adopted.

You may be right. I don't know if the hospital would still have the records since it was so long ago - 38 years.

There is a way depending on the state you were born in. I cannot think of it at the moment but they can allow you thru the freedom of information act to search some of those records.

I guess you need to know where you were born and go from there.
