Who are we?
FindMe.org started On March 1, 1997 after I had spent a few months adding my information to all the internet registries that I could find, to find my birth mother.
After searching so many registries, one thing I noticed is that many of the registries out there are complicated and unorganized. I had an idea to start my own registry, and vowed to make it as simple and easy to use as possible.
Little did I know, I had really gotten in over my head. I did not realize how quickly the page would get popular, and how many registries would come pouring in.
By May of 1997 , with my full time job, and doing this free registry as a hobby, I suddenly found myself swamped with more incoming registries than I could handle by myself; that's when Lynn offered to take over half the workload! :)
By Jan 1998 we had 2 volunteers helping to add registries, and we continued to grow until we were a team of 13. In the past 3 years we have had many great volunteers come and go, each of them dedicating their time and efforts.
FindMe is now a team of 7 people who check inquiries, answer email, and update our pages, all in their spare time. Without volunteers, FindMe.org wouldn't be where it is today.
The idea was born!
We continue strong!
