  • Check disclosure laws in the state he was born/adopted to see what info can be released to you.

    http://www.bastards.org/activism/access.htm

    Many states do not recognize siblings searching, so you may have an easier time with (your/his) parent requesting non-I'd and possible search with an intermediary.

    My state, WA only recognizes siblings searching if the original mother/ father is deceased. The state I live in Maryland, only allows a search for a sibling if BOTH children were adopted and into seperate families. Maryland is so anal that if an intermediary finds the person you seek is deceased- the records are slammed shut! No info is exchanged! They must protect those identities even in death.
    Check the law and know what info you're entitled to. Ill post again with a good article about 'how to' search.

  • If you know his adopted name and where he lived you can always send a generic letter to everyone in that area with the same name. That's what I did to find my dd's birth father and actually hit the jackpot and got a letter from him 2 weeks later! Sometimes the simple things work.
