The Donor Sibling Registry

By on March 25, 2008

The Donor Sibling Registry was created in September 2000 by Wendy Kramer and her son Ryan. Certain that other donor offspring would have the same curiosity as Ryan about his genetic origins – yet also knowing that, sadly, no public outlet exists for mutual consent contact between people born from anonymous sperm donation – Wendy started this site as the logical next step to making those connections! Active membership (both paying and non paying members) in the Donor Sibling Registry is currently at 11971 with matches between more than 4832 half-siblings (and/or donors) facilitated.

Total number of registrants, including children, is currently at 18858. Several thousand more check the site regularly, but are not ready to post their information. The 2007 number of unique visitors totaled more 88,800 – from 143 countries.
The focus of the Donor Sibling Registry (DSR) is to assist individuals conceived as a result of sperm, egg or embryo donation who are seeking to make mutually desired contact with others with whom they share genetic ties. This may include:

· Their own or their child’s half-siblings, or
· their own or their child’s genetic father or mother, or
· Their own genetic offspring.

The DSR fully supports openness, honesty and the acknowledgement of these family connections. We realize, however, that some folks may want to remain anonymous while sharing important medical or genetic information with their fellow “donor families”. For these people, we suggest using a throw away untraceable email address.

Egg, sperm or embryo donors who are willing to have contact with the children born as a result of their donations are VERY WELCOME! Even if you do not know your donor number, it is still possible to search and be found. Contact Wendy wendy.kramer@yahoo.com if you need help.

The Donor Sibling Registry is a recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and not affiliated with PVEDO.

    The DSR is a great place to look for matches and other information. However, please be aware that there are many other sites out there that are free where people can find matches and other information. Here are just a few:
