A lot of adoptees are ordering a family tree DNA kit from 23andme. It's the cheapest one out there & has the largest database. A LOT of adoptees are doing it to try to find their birth parents.

There are groups of adoption DNA search angels as well as DNA groups to learn more about using DNA tools for various purposes; who will help you and educate you on how this works so you can then help others. People are finding their relatives every single week.

After doing the 23andme test and once you have those results; upload to FTDNA (Family tree DNA) for about $99 and to GEDmatch and a DNA Tools site DNAgedcom.com both free.

Also; make sure you registered on the reunion site
Another place to start is on Facebook.
Adoption news & events has many adoption FB pages that they like.

The search angels are wonderful here. They helped my friend find her friends child.
