My Story

Thank you for considering using MY STORY with Long Lost Families.

How To Appeal On My Story.

Anyone accepted onto my story has to be verified as being in a position where a lack of funding is an issue when trying to locate their missing family.

By family we mean those who have been adopted, abandoned or any missing persons directly related to the bloodline of the person making the appeal. It may be someone who was adopted looking for their biological family or a parent looking for their adopted children. Someone who has become disconnected from their family for a long period of time.

Long Lost Families will make the final judgement about who appears on MY STORY but we remain sympathetic to all cases

You can either call us to discuss appearing on “My STORY” or as an alternative fill out the template at the bottom. If you wish we can also conduct a video call.

During that conversation we will collect as much information from you on the person or persons you wish to locate. We need to establish that you do not have the funds to pay yourself. Once we establish the facts that a search can be carried out with a chance of success we will add you to MY STORY using that information.  The basic admin fee for an insertion is £60. To pay please fill the below form. WE CAN TAKE PAYMENTS OVER THE PHONE.

Each search is unique to the individual and will be tailor-made to suit you.

Process:

  1. Phone Long Lost Families to be placed on my story. If you prefer email us your story.
  2. Once verified and accepted we will send you out a contract to sign. The small deposit to commence the search process will still be necessary for your search to be accepted.
  3. We will keep you informed about progress usually by email or your preferred contact method.
  4. Once we locate the person you are seeking and can establish their true identity we will contact you.
  5. The remainder of the fee is funded from those same donations.
  6. We understand its a nervous time for both parties, so if funding allows we can arrange that for you too.

Call us on 07737 259732 if you wish to be considered for MY STORY.

Email us your story and we will get back you: [email protected]

Don’t forget anyone can ask to be placed in the “CAN YOU HELP US FIND” frames on the home page free of charge.

Our Rules For Donations

All donations are used for the sole purpose of locating missing biological family for individuals appealing on My Story and verified by Long Lost Families 

Long Lost Families carry out all searches but on occasions we may use individuals who work closely with us and are bound by contract. 

Donations go to the selected individual on My Story. We don’t stop funds at a certain amount as a standard search may turn out to be an enhanced one. For example locating someone who has moved overseas, or where DNA testing may be necessary. 

Any extra funds when a search is completed are accumulated into a central fund from which others in a similar situation can apply to access if they meet the verifiable criteria.

The minimum donation is £5. There is no maximum donation. Large donations can be accepted which can go directly into the central fund and will benefit those that appeal on My Story and are verified by Long Lost Families. Please state CENTRAL DONATION when you wish your donation to go straight into the central fund. 

All funds received and their use will be verifiable within the legal accounting procedures governed by U.K. law.

Advice from LLF:

It is important to get across the emotion of why you need to find your missing loved one. Why it’s so important to you. Be sincere. Add the latest photo / image you have of them. PLEASE FILL IN ALL FIELDS AND PUT “NOT KNOWN” if you do not have that information
