No matter how loving adoptive parents may be, their children often want to know where they came from. is starting a major initiative to make it easier for children who have been adopted to track down their birth parents, the company said yesterday.

“No matter how loving adoptive parents may be, their children often want to know where they came from,” a spokesman said. “That used to be impossible, but laws on sealed adoptions are changing and we want to help these people find their birth parents if they need to.”

Different states have different laws about who is allowed access to birth and adoption records, the spokesman said.

“In some states it's just a matter of asking for the records,” he said. “But other states make you go through a legal process. We want to explain to our customers exactly how to do that.”

The information will be posted in the members' section of the site. It will then be released through social media and finally on the company's blog,

“We'll also train our customer service staff to explain the legal process to customers who contact them,” the spokesman said. “This is information they may really need.”

Adopted children often look for their birth parents when they have a medical condition that makes it imperative that they know their medical history, he said.

“We think this information can help improve the quality of life for some of our customers,” the spokesman said. “That is a very important part of our mission.”

About was created to give people access to public birth records. It offers consumers an independent source of birth record information from a constantly updated database.
