Birth Family Search Service

Over the years, people have asked us to post birth information about people born on February 29th that they are looking for. So far, all the searches are by birth family members, searching for somebody that was given up in adoption.  Two of these have resulted in successful searches.  If you are looking for somebody born on Leap Year Day -- chances are they might visit this website one day, and see this information.  

Below is a table of searches we're supporting, and below that, some comments about how this works:

How This Works

If you are searching for someone born on Leap Day, or if you are born on Leap Day, and are searching for people that know something about your birth, then we will place a record here for you. 
Contact us if you would like to post something in this registry, or if you have any questions about this registry and how it works.
Registry Records
Each record has three parts, birth information which consist of some known facts about the birth, the person (or group) conducting the search, and a contact.
Currently we do not support direct contact.  If you are interested in a particular search, you must contact us, and use us as intermediaries.  We may take up to a week to respond to a query.

Role of Intermediary

The role of the intermediary is to communicate between parties, and to respect the privacy of all involved. Parties can remain anonymous if they want. Usually, it is best to work with an intermediary in initial contact, if nothing else than to provide support for the unexpected  information that may be revealed. There is always a chance that you won't like what you find -- and that's hard to deal with alone.
