Born to be Found was created in 2002 by Gina Gingell.

It is an independent research company working on behalf of many local authorities and after adoption support agencies aiming to trace adopted adults and birth relatives.

If the placing agency is known please contact them first.

If the placing agency isn’t known, we recommend that prospective clients contact their local authority or local after adoption support agency for guidance on tracing their relative, irrespective of the birth town of the sought after person.

Born to be Found will carry out research for any local authority or agency and work under a non-disclosure policy (where applicable).

We recommend that all approaches to relatives are carried out by qualified intermediaries to enable our clients to have the best chance of a successful outcome.
