HOW IT WORKS
The California Cryobank® Sibling Registry is a free, optional resource that helps donor conceived individuals and donor recipients connect with other donor conceived siblings who were conceived using the same California Cryobank donor.
Once you join the registry, you’ll be given access to help you discover siblings from your same donor. And, if you so choose, you’ll also have the opportunity to reach out to those sibling matches, or even share your own information with others who may be trying to connect with you.
Who Can Participate?
Participation in the California Cryobank Sibling Registry is, of course, completely optional. The registry is open to anyone using a California Cryobank donor who has notiﬁed us of a pregnancy. Donor conceived individuals (over 18) are also invited to participate, but we ask that parents carefully monitor the use of the site by any children who are under 18. In addition to California Cryobank donors, we also have some client and donor ﬁles from USC/PTI (Procreative Technologies) which we acquired in 1997. If you have any questions about USC/PTI donors, please contact us.

Levels of Participation
We understand that not everyone will feel comfortable sharing their personal information with other families. That’s why we’ve included several ways to participate in the California Cryobank Sibling Registry. Some individuals may choose to simply view other posts in their Donor Sibling Group without sharing any personal information; others may be interested in posting their own Sibling Listings and interacting further with other families related to their donor.
Regardless, your confidentiality will always be protected and only the information you want to disclose will be disclosed.
Here are the levels of participation from which you can choose:
Please note: To safeguard the privacy of our families, any access or interaction you choose is limited to your individual Donor Sibling Group only.
View Sibling Listings and read Bulletin Board messages.
Share a message with only your username displayed.
Contribute to the Sibling Listings
Parents may add a pregnancy or birth, and donor conceived individuals may add themselves to the Sibling Listing.
Share Your Info
Choose to display your first name, email address, or state & country when you post a pregnancy/birth listing. You can set these preferences when you go to My Account
Guidelines for Participation in the Sibling Registry Bulletin Board
Rather than a universal forum for all California Cryobank Sibling Registry users, your Bulletin Board oﬀers access only to those associated with your particular donor.
We look forward to helping you connect with other Cryobank families! Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
Please Note: Messages from our old Sibling Registry will not display unless the member who posted the message activates their account on our new website.
