I'm looking for my biological father and siblings.
Characteristics of my father might have been tall, around 5'11"-6', dark brown hair, green/brown eyes, medium build and caucasian.
I am 5'9", slim build, brown eyes, wavy brown hair (coloured black in my photos), caucasian.
I was conceived December 31st, 1987 born Sept 28 1988.
My donor may have been a medical student at Vancouver General Hospital.
I have attached a few photos of me and also one with my mother to view.
I donated extensively between 1982 and 1991, although frozen sperm may have been used longer. I was told by the clinic that recipients were from BC, AB, WA and ID. At least two sets of parents received a second donation. I donated while a psychology student (undergrad and PhD).
Found/met donor through yahoo group (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/BCDonorconception/). Told there were at least two other registered pregnancies with this donor. Joined Family Tree DNA. Dr. Korn gave some false information, so not all info may match.
"UBC med student" is all we've been told about our donor.
As fraternal twins, some shared trait different from the rest of our family might reflect our donor. We both have very fair skin, straight brown to dark blonde hair, blue-grey eyes, slim build, very flexible joints. Inclined toward science and writing.
We both have done 23andme DNA testing, and have uploaded results to GEDmatch.com; kit numbers: M379904 and M886951; Y-chromosome haplogroup: R1b1b2a1a. I've also tested with Family Tree DNA and Ancestry.ca. Ancestry mostly Northwestern European, especially British Isles. Family trees of donor-side distant cousins suggest possible roots in Newfoundland, England, and the United States.
Our blood types are O- and (I think) A+, and our mother's is O-, so our donor should probably be A+ (with A/O and +/- genotype).
Our younger sister had a different donor, and has tested on FTDNA. GEDmatch kit number: T433497
1st Donated in Jul/Aug 1986 (miscarriage)
there were 2 donations made in a one week period, donor showed up for both.
2nd donation made in October 1986 (which resulted in me)
there were supposed to be 2 donations made in a 1 week period but donor only showed for the first appointment.
I have recently found out I am a donor offspring baby. I just received the results through 23 and me with no current matches.
- I have light straight brown/sandy hair, Blue eyes, 5'9 3/4, big boned - large feet (size 10 1/2-11 women's) Large hands too. A+ Blood Type, 100% European background, mostly eastern Europe and UK (according to 23 and me), I have a career in "sciences/health"
I don't know anything about the donor except that he was likely a med student at UBC (although that seems to be what everyone hears!). I am an only child, fair complexion, 5'4" with straight brown hair and hazel eyes. Based one 23andme I'm mostly Western European with some Eastern European. I have added my results to GEDmatch.com.
I am interested in learning about any half siblings and/or the donor. Thanks!
No known information on donor other than may have been a doctor. From what I've read it could have been a med student as that seems to be the most common donor info. The information I received from my mother was vague. I am Caucasian male, thick brown hair, slight auburn tint (straight when short, gets very poofy and somewhat wavy when longer), blueish gray eyes, slight point on tops of ears, rectangular face shape with defined jaw line. Medium build, around 180 lbs, broad shoulders with large traps. Very long arms. GEDmatch UV9653170, 23andme paternal haplogroup is I-L205.1
We are four (as of me writing this) half-siblings who have connected through several different DNA sites. Donor was described as a med student at UBC with brown hair and a stocky build, though Dr. Korn's information was not reliable (we have identified our donor).
Half of us have very red hair and the donor's blood type seems likely to have been A+ or A- and cannot have been AB. The donor's Y-chromosome haplogroup is R1b-M222 and he is mostly (half?) of Irish descent. The donations range from at least 1983 to 1988.
If you're already on Gedmatch, Family Tree DNA or Ancestry DNA then at least one of us should have popped up as a match already if we are related. If not then taking one of those tests is an easy way to find out for sure, but feel free to reach out to us either way.
No Donor Information
Light brown curly/wavy hair, blue eyes, 5 foot 5 inches, medium build
My blood type is A-
Donor blood type would be A or AB based on my mothers blood type (O)
Born: February 1981
Conception: Approximately May 1980
No information about donor
Have done DNA testing with a few other offspring and one donor from Dr. Korns Clinic with no matches (done in Vancouver, BC approx. 2005); have done Ancestry and 23andme with 3 half-sister matches :)
I am a former UBC medical student who donated my sperm between 95 & 99 (I can't remember which of those years specifically) Dr. Gerald Korn was the director of the Andrology Lab then. I would be thrilled to meet my son or daughter.
Donor had green/blue eyes.
I supposedly have 3 half siblings with the same donor.
I am 5'1" average build with broad shoulders. Blue/green eyes with a strange yellowish ring around the iris. Blood type O+.
My DNA is on file with 23 and me as well as FTDNA (Family Tree DNA).
I am hoping to find my half-siblings. I wish I had a donor number, but I don't think Dr. Korn knows which donor went to whom. I have no health history.I have already had DNA tests with 2 other potential half-siblings which came out negative, and I know of several other children and adults from Dr. Korns clinic that are from the ages 10 and up.
Father apparently had brown hair, blue eyes and may have been a medical student or doctor at the time. One thing interesting about the father was there was no known diseases or "acne". Daughter has B- blood type.
We are assuming donor had brown hair and brown eyes as were told they would match hair and eye color to my
husband. That is all the information we were told. Daughter was
conceived April 1990 with frozen
sperm. Pictures of daughter.
Tall. Daughter is 5'10". Son is 6'2". Blue eyes and green eyes. Daughter has dark brown, wavy hair. Son has straight light brown hair. Daughter blood is A+ and son is 0+. Mother is A-. Stopped donating probably around June/July 1989. There are photos of son and daughter for members only. The only sure way to know of matches is DNA testing. My daughter went through www.familytreedna.com and used the Family Finder kit around $100. I have uploaded the DNA results from Family Tree DNA to GEDmatch.
I am searching for my biological father and/or half siblings. Insemination done by Dr. Gerald Korn in Vancouver BC in 1987. I am a female born on April 8, 1988. Brown eyes and brown curly hair. I am 5'7. Donor may have been a post secondary student at UBC or another university. and may also have a Hungarian background. any inquiries are welcome. I am desperate to find out any information.
Donated in early July of 1985. During pregnancy, donor was tested (quite possibly while in Alberta) for thalassemia minor. Donor was "relieved" to find out test result was negative. Donated again (upon request) in middle of January of 1988. All charateristics unknown except donor is probably over 6' tall.
