After thirty years of adoptees attempting to gain access, New Jersey open adoption records may finally become a reality.
The Assembly Human Service Committee unanimously approved a bill that has now been moved to the full Assembly for a vote.
This open records bill–The Adoptees’ Birthright Bill–will give adult adoptees, adoptive parents of a minor or relatives of a deceased adoptee access to original birth certificates. These records contain the names of the birth mother and Read More
Adoption searching for a birth mother or adopted child is tough work. Each search is unique and the methods and resources OmniTrace uses vary depending on a number of circumstances:
When was the adoptee born?
Where was the adoptee born?
When and where did the adoption take place?
Was the adoption done through an adoption agency?
Was the adoptee born in a hospital?
Any name info on the birth mother (adoption searching for birth mother)?
Any name info on the adopting parents (adoption searching for adoptee)?
Of course, for most adoption searching cases, we usually begin with Read More

After Ray Martinez’s adoptive parents passed away, he searched for and found his birth mother to tell her, “Thank you for giving me life.” She initially hung up the phone on him, but then called back.
Colorado native, Ray Martinez, writes about living in an orphanage, being adopted and much later in life, finding his birth mother. The complete story appears in “Mom: A Celebration of Mothers from StoryCorps” (The Penguin Press, $21.95). Ray is a former mayor of Fort Collins. He now heads business development and public relations for Information Technology eXperts Inc.
“I was raised in the Colorado State Children’s Home in Denver. They kept kids from infancy to age eighteen or nineteen years old. I was there from infancy to age five. I remember that the orphanage had this practice where they would allow potential parents to check you out like a library book: they could borrow you for a couple of weeks, take you home, and see if you were a fit for their family.
A couple of times I remember riding in the car, leaving the orphanage with potential parents, and them just trying to make me happy and make me laugh, and me sitting in the front in these little booster seats cars had back then in the fifties. But I never remember…”

To whom it may concern,
I am a small business owner in the asset recovery sector. Our company helps find people that are legitimately owed money primarily from government agencies and we recovery the funds on their behalf. One of the challenges in our line of work is locating the whereabouts of the claimant. It was with great satisfaction, that we were able to find OmniTrace. Having compared their services with other companies in the people search business, we were able to immediately recognize that their value and services in many ways exceeded that of their competition. I have gone on to get to know the owner Dave Betz and have found him to be equally accomplished in what he does. He has put together the premier skip tracing and people finding company in the industry. In our short time together, we were able to locate quite a few claimants that we more than likely would not have been able to find on our own without the resources and professionalism of OmniTrace.
It is my privilege to recommend OmniTrace and Dave Betz to help locate whoever it is that may need to be found whether an individual or a company.
Please feel free to contact me should you want further details on our experience with OmniTrace. I can be reached directly at (888) 541-5783.
(Thanks for the great review of OmnTrace John. Best regards, Dave Betz)
Anonymous Sperm Donor Traced On Internet
“LATE last year, a 15-year-old boy rubbed a swab along the inside of his cheek, popped it into a vial and sent it off to an online genealogy DNA-testing service. But unlike most people who contact the service, he was not interested in sketching the far reaches of his family tree. His mother had conceived using donor sperm and he wanted to track down his genetic father.
That the boy succeeded using only the DNA test, genealogical records and some internet searches has huge implications for the hundreds of thousands of people who were conceived using donor sperm. With the explosion of information about genetic inheritance, any man who has donated sperm could potentially be found by his biological offspring. Absent and unknown fathers will also become easier to trace.
The teenager tracked down his father from his…”

Haiti’s capital awoke to increasing desperation Thursday morning, a day and a half after a devastating earthquake, with covered bodies piling up along streets and modern aspects of life, such as electricity, mostly missing.
The streets of Port-au-Prince resembled grainy black-and-white newsreels from World War II that showed the rubble of bombed-out houses in Berlin and London. The devastation was wide and often horrific.
OmniTrace will be donating a portion of our fee for each new search to the victims, as well as launching a food drive. We’re still formulating our charitable program and will provide additional details shortly.
In the meantime, please say a prayer for the victims and their families who have been affected by this terrible event.
When Patricia Dukeman started trying to find her biological parents, Ronald Reagan lived in the White House, Michael Jackson’s “Beat It” was record of the year, and the Supreme Court decided it was OK for us to use those new VCR things to tape TV shows.
