[ro͞ots] plural; [ro͞ot] singular
1. the basic causes, sources, or origins of something.
A tree, with its many leaves, branches, and fruit still relies on its ROOTS to provide grounding, nourishment, and direction. Tree ROOTS run deep and have many twists and turns along its vast path. Some ROOTS are healthy, some are not. Some are living, some have died and withered to nothing more than memories. Others are buried so deep that they are impossible to uncover. But all ROOTS are a source of life.

WHAT WE DO

ROOTS understands the importance of providing support services before, during and after a find. Although we have an incredible team, we have a team of clinicians to provide emotional support to our clients.
We understand the intimate and often intimidating process of conducting a birthfamily search. We will NEVER share your story with others. We are committed to keeping you and your story private.
ROOTS offers a series of self-help search seminars to clients who wish to conduct their own search.
We can build your family tree too! ROOTS has a team of professional genealogists and researchers just waiting to help you complete your family tree.
Who are you…really? Today’s youth know more about the family history of their favorite star, than they know about their own. They can recite names, ages, birthdates, historical details and milestone moments of any given real housewife, diva, wag, or Kardashian, yet they are completely unaware of the names of their great-grandparents, or the fact that their first cousin-once removed was a freedom rider. Finding Me is a project designed to assist teens and young adults with finding their genealogical roots. This 4-week project will open the eyes and hearts of all participants and unlock the power of the past in hopes of a brighter future!
In our 20 year history, we have reunited over 1500 biological family members. You could be next! Contact us today to begin your search!!!
