Through the below form, you will initiate the first steps towards your search of your biological family in Chile. Unfortunately, this search does not come with any guarantees. Please be informed that there is a lot of information on this website in the FAQ section that helps you already to understand why your family search can take some time.
The team who will be working on your search are all human beings that know the emotions a family search. In case your family will be found, it is just the beginning of a new chapter in your life. One in which there are also no guarantees on how that will develop.
The people helping you with your search have dealt with this themselves and have also helped many others to go through this process. A process for which there doesn’t exist any handbook or manual on how to deal with the emotions and how to deal with the (cultural )differences one can encounter.
A family search is free of charge!
For a family search you will not (read: never) be charged! We believe that it is a human right to be in contact with your biological family, to know where you come from and you have the right to your identity.
