You will need some basic information to start with. Once you have or find the adopted given name, you can use genealogy records as a great resource.

The first thing to do is to visit the government agency that deals with adoption and find out in their records details about your brother such as: 1. The date of adoption 2. To whom was he adopted to 3. Any other legal document signed during the adoption

Adoptions are a very confidential matter as information can only be viewed by the birth parents, adopted parents, or by your brother hisself. The search for your brother needs to begin with your moms involvement or his adoptive parents. If you know his name and if he is 18 or older you may be able to find him online.

Start with going to the hospitals first and see how much information you can get from them. Using his birthdate and social security number, go onto any websites that allow you to look at public records. Some websites might want you to pay to request more info.

This is a touchy subject. He might not want to be found. If it was an open adoption, you need to contact the adoption agency.
