After entering DNA in 23 and me and ancestry I discovered several half siblings. One says her mom said she did artificial insemination by a doctor in Brooklyn NY and then Long Island.
Donor was Jewish born 1937. Offspring seem to have been born in the sixties.
I am 52 years old and my parents told me very recently that my father is not my genetic father. They told me that they think the doctor donated his own sperm. I did DNA testing and have at least five half-siblings, some associated with Dr. Dourmashkin and The Margaret Sanger Clinic.
My mother shared her "secret" with me in December 2017, just over one year after my lifelong father passed away. She shared that I was born through the use of a sperm donor since she was unable to have children otherwise due to Rh-negative incompatibility. The donor was a doctor with Rh-negative blood and the insemination took place in New York City. I have no further details about my donor. I was conceived in February 1962 and I have a teenage son who is also very curious about our possible biological family.
I am a product of donor sperm collected by Dr. John Mcleod (deceased) who was an instructor of residents at the New York Cornell (now Cornell Weil) University Hospital. The sperm was supposed to have been collected from a resident medical student at the hospital sometime around Nov. 1967. It was forwarded to Dr. Myron Buchman, my mother's ob/gyn for insemination. Dr. Mcleod made collections from Cornell Hospital residents and sent them to many physicians in New York City during that era. I know this as a result of investigation. Please reach out to me if you were a resident donor during that era or your mother's ob/gyn may have received sperm through Dr. Mcleod. I only wish relevant medical information and am willing to connect further only if it is desired. Thank you. I am married with 2 healthy children and live in New York.
What I know: the donor was supposidly a resident or intern at Lenox Hill Hospital in NYC. My mother gave Dr. Solon Gottlieb (who had offices on Park Ave., and also in Teaneck, NJ) a picture of my father and requested the donor have a similar background (Jewish, brown hair, brown eyes). I don't know, of course, if the donor actually had all those traits. The donation would have taken place during the summer of 1966.
I was conceived by donor insemination in the private office of Dr. Leonard Ciner in October 1967. Donor was said to be a medical student in the New
York area. I am 5'2" tall, light brown hair, brown eyes, Rh-. Ciner said he
would seek a "dark, Eastern European, (Jewish?) donor" to match my father.
Seeking more information.
I am a boy, born November 1963 in Sloan Hospital, Columbia University, N.Y. Donor was a medical student at the time. The presiding doctor at delivery was Dr. Dean J. Grandin. I have dark hair, now prematurely grey, green/blue eyes, quite fair comlexion and am 5'9". I have a brother and sister, but most certainly they were conceived through other donors
I am the mother of 2 children and was artificially inseminated
twice - starting at the end of 1967. My first child was born in
September, 1968. My second child was born in August 1971. I was told
by my doctor that the donor was the same person for both children. I
was referred to this doctor (an older female GYN) by Margaret Sanger
Clinic in New York, New York (which is now Planned Parenthood).
Neither my ex-husband or I remember the name of the doctor. In those
days, it was the beginning of artificial insemination and everything
was TOTALLY SECRETIVE. We didn't even get to chose the donor, as
people are allowed to these days. The doctor chose the person and
did not share any details at all except that his profile closely
matched my ex-husband. All that we were told was that he was a
medical school student in New York. The donor sperm came through another doctor, Dr. John McCloud (deceased).
