Trace your family history
Start to trace your family history by sending us an enquiry form with details about your relative.
When you have sent the form and payment (if appropriate), a search of Barnardo’s archives will be undertaken and we will contact you to advise the outcome of the search.
You can either make an enquiry online, and pay with credit card, or see postal details below.
Make a postal enquiry with a cheque payment (if appropriate) by downloading one of the following forms and sending it back to us.

We take great care to look after yours and your relatives' data. Here are our rules around handling data (PDF).
We believe in children. Funds raised through this service are reinvested in Barnardo's work with children and young people.
