About us

First and foremost, we are family.  We found that out when Jenni (in the middle) reached out to us on Ancestry.com hoping to find info on who her biological parents were (she was adopted at birth). One month, and over 100 emails later we had located both of her biological parents. You can read more about our story here.

Reflecting on that month, we realized that we had a lot of skills that worked well together. We also felt a desire to help others in the journey (a.k.a. roller coaster ride) to finding missing family members. From that desire, DiscoverFamily.netâ„¢ was born.

As of April 2021, we are officially a 501(c)3 Non-Profit registered in the United States.

A growing team with experience

We have been blessed to have others join our team including:

Meagan is an extremely talented researcher with over a hundred and forty finds under her belt. DNA and Genealogy are her thang.
Diann is thoughtful and methodical. She will spend hours mapping out by hand a family tree. A real anchor to our team!
Lori is an adoptee herself, and has a knack for online sleuthing. Her tenacity shines through when working on case!
Troy is the visionary who started pulling this all together, and also has four young adopted kids of his own. Have you seen the TV Pilot yet?
Dwight has the skills to be a great search angel! He frequently builds out family trees with hundreds of names and taking on the difficult cases. We are glad to have him on our team.
Mike is the front line fielding request from the many visitors to our website. Your first email will probably be with him!
Jenni's desire to know her birth parents is what started this all. Be sure to check out the video in the video section of our website.
