DNA testing successfully leads to identifying sperm donor

Posted on 12/17/16

I've finally identified my donor through DNA testing and genealogy research. It took me 2 years of genealogical research to find him. I've done all of the heavy lifting for any of my half siblings who might consider testing. My bio-father donated in 1982 at Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton, Ohio. He and I have been corresponding for a while and he's open to meeting more offspring (as am I). All donor offspring should do a DNA test, especially if you were born in Ohio and know that your donor donated in Dayton, Ohio. I'm tested on all of the major sites and will match you right away. I highly recommend 23andme, but Ancestry DNA and Family Tree DNA will work just as well. It's super easy. If you don't match me, you may match another close relative who can lead you in the right direction. I look forward to meeting you.
