In our register we mediate contact of:
- those who have been concieved through the use of the same donor
- the donor and his offspring
You can register the donor number or other information here and then hope that another member registers using the same information. If you are under the age of 18 you will need to have your legal guardian sign your registry application. As a donor, you may also register with us, so that any children who want to have the possiblity to contact you.
The reason most people seek out this type of register is, according to research, usually curiosity – and getting in touch with half-siblings is usually a positive experience for all involved.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to join the register.
There are three ways to be matched (besides DNA-test):
a) an ID-code (or a donor ”alias” name) is a simple and trustworthy method compared to
b) using information about the donor (for example hair and eye colour) or
c) circumstances surrounding the conception (the fertility clinic´s name, time of conception etc)
The a) donor number and c) circumstances surrounding the conception is in accordance with the Swedish Personal Data Act. According to the Act, no sensitive personal information should occur in computerised registers without the consent of the affected individual. For legal and ethical reasons, for the donors sake, we do not allow alternative b) (personally descriptive donor details in the register). The donors who join of their own accord are obviously treated the same way as any other members.
In some nordic countries (such as Sweden) a donor number is not available. This could also be appropriate for someone who was conceived using a Danish sperm bank before the ID-code system was in use. In both cases you are welcome to join the matching register by alternative c).
You are one of many fellows who doesn´t care about that genetic thing. Ok! Please join us and become a part of the Seed Siblings FB-group, the forum and ”Seed Siblings on Skype”.
The register is run and maintained by the board of the Swedish non-profit organisation Scandinavian Seed Siblings.
