Built From Passion

Being online for over 16 years we have helped reunite thousands of people from all over the world looking for someone in Australia. As an Australian owned and operated business, Mike built Oz Reunion with a passion to find his lost brother. He had success 6 years later!


Oz Reunion is an Internet based business, where clients register the details of other people they are searching for, on our web site. Our aim is reunite lost family and friends through the Internet. Oz Reunion has already been reviewed by New Woman Magazine, Michelle Collins from Queensland’s Sunday Mail, Elissa Jenkins from The Courier Mail, Australian Net Guide, Andy Wells.com, MsMegaByte, Damien Nowicki from W.A.'s Sunday Times, Nick Galvin from ICON & the Sydney Morning Herald, and the Sunshine Coast Daily. See below for a copy of the articles written about us. With an amazing number of ‘hits’ since inception, our listings are growing each day. New entries are arriving from all over the world, for people looking for other people in Australia.
Our Event Register consists of many categories which most are a FREE community service. These include family & friends, military, emergency services, & sports club reunions. There is no charge and no time limit on these listings. The site has been in the planning for six years, and he created the concept from a need to locate a long lost stepbrother he is searching for. The details have been posted on the "missing persons" page. "There was no Australian Internet site that combined all types of reunions into one, so I decided to build one myself, hoping to help other people on the way as well". It was created to cater for Australian interests only. There are many sites in America where they specialize in military, high school reunions and missing persons. So why not put them all together on an Australian site!
The other section is the classifieds, where an ad of 100 words or less can be placed for a one-off payment of AUD$20.00. You can also include a FREE photo with your ad. These pages consist of an Adoption Register, Lost Loves (child hood sweethearts), Heirs, Missing Persons, Lost Contact, Here I Am ,Descendants section and School Reunions. There are also some great genealogy links on the "descendants page", by each state, that should interest a lot of people. The site enables people to have one central point of reference on the Internet if they are planning a reunion in Australia, or would like to see if for example their school is having a 10 year reunion.
Our goal is to reunite Australian family & friends who are for example, missing, adoption cases, old school friends, heirs, lost loves, or people who have lost contact with each other, using the Internet. We are not a private investigator firm, and we do not track down individual cases. It is merely an avenue to post information on an "Australian only" Internet site. The concept is designed to compliment any other searching means you are presently trying. Gaining maximum exposure in advertising, word of mouth, etc. we are currently attracting over 500,000 hits per month, and increasing rapidly, as more people find out about us!
The site was in the planning since 1994, and was launched in 2000. It was created the concept from a need to locate a long lost half-brother he was searching for, which he has now been found thanks to this website. "There was no Australian Internet site that combined all types of reunions into one, so I decided to build one myself, hoping to help other people on the way as well". It was created to cater for Australian interests only. There are many sites in America where they specialize in military, high school reunions and missing persons. So why not put them all together on an Australian site!
People love Oz Reuion and many have turned to us as a last resort when all other avenues had failed. We have literally reunited thousands of people since being online. It may take a while to be found, or it may be only a short period of time, but Oz Reunion gives people hope. Our successful reunions and media partners have spread the good word about us. We have been reviewed by many National & local agencies. A big thanks to Mr Google too.

A million thanks for the incredible service

Very pleased to say that my brother saw the entry I posted in Oz Reunion on March 7 and emailed me last week. All we knew was his birth name and that he was born a few years after me. We are now in contact - after 49.5 years. A million thanks for the incredible service you offer!


Oz Reunion changed our lives

After twelve and a half years of searching for our older sister, I found her two years ago thanks to my very small post that had been sitting on Mike's website for a few years. I had found my birth family in the mid 80s, and a chance comment in 2000 started this search. Even though we'd all met up two years ago, it was only three weeks ago at our youngest sister's surprise 60th birthday lunch that we were all together for the very first time in our lives. Words cannot express our thanks enough - Mike, without you and your website, our lives would not be filled with the happiness we now have.


You have changed my life

I would like to thank Mike and the team at Oz Reunion for helping me find my family after 27 years, I was reunited with my birth mum and siblings. On the 4th of May 2014 we were all together reunited as was. Thank you Mike for all your help. You have changed my life, and from overnight being an only child I have gained so much.


No words can express my gratitude

It was my add on your site that brought not only my biological Mother and I together but also my biological Father. I am now surrounded by all these wonderful people, who have so much love and joy at finding me after 41 years of wondering if I was safe and happy. It is an amazing experience and they are beautiful people. I'm still in the process of meeting their families and have 7 half brothers and sisters to meet as well. Not a day goes by that I don't smile at all that has happened in such a short time. Thank you again for providing Australia with such an easy way to reunite people.

Amazing! Thank you once again

I just wanted you to know that we have been successful in finding Ellen (birth mother) & other family members thanks to your site. As a result of your site, a half-brother that we didn't know even existed. So thank you VERY VERY much!! We felt like we had hit the final brick wall in ever finding anyone else, & then everything just snowballed over a period of 2 weeks. Amazing! Thank you once again for all that you've been instrumental in achieving for us.

Robyn & John Holloway

Thanks again for making my dream come true

Thankyou for your website. it is the best thing ever. Well i have found my dad. He is alive and very healthy. thanks to all those people that emailed me and rang me with information. I now have a very large family. My dad has five other children and my mum has two and I'm the oldest of 3 sisters and four brothers. My dad is Douglas John Uerbergang. I'm very happy and my life is complete. I met my dad in July 2007 and the best thing was my mum {Mary} came with me. They hadn't seen each other since i was born. That was 47 yrs ago. It was the proudest day of my life. Not many other people would have the luck as i did to have both birth parents at the meeting.

How can I ever thank you enough

It was a simple post on your website which led to my adoption reunion through a programme on TV .... like many others here I had nearly given up hope of ever "knowing". I now have my birth mother & 4 siblings in my life and there is plenty of love for all! Finding out about my mother, wonderful brothers & sisters, nieces & nephews & close indigenous family ties are just the beginning. How can I ever thank you enough Mike, for making the phone call that gave me a fairy tale ending.

This is better than winning lotto!

Thank you so much , today I spoke to my son for the very first time, oh joy to finally get my one wish i.e. to learn that he was and is and always will be part of a beautiful and very loving family , into which he was welcomed with so much love and joy ,since I had to let him go in February 1969. This is better than winning the lotto!!. Thank you so, so much for your marvellous site, my son Jamie and I met for the first time in thirty eight and half years, on 17th August at Adelaide airport, oh what a wonderful moment, we hugged immediately and I truly thought my heart would burst with love and pride, that this fine young man was actually my son. The pure joy of that meeting will remain with me always. Watch the video: click here

Thank you for this great website

When I was little my birth mother disappeared from my sisters and my life this was 1963 .. my dad had remarried and we all moved on. We have both been on a long and exhaustive search trying to piece together the puzzle Kept coming up empty, until Kim stumbled across an entry on Oz Reunion in the Adoption Register. She found a name & looked it up, and low and behold all the information that we have SO DOES POSSIBLY ONE OF OUR LONG LOST SIBLINGS who we know nothing about. This is the first real breakthrough in nearly 40 years and the first small piece of info that has come across our paths. Thank you to the website hopefully we can get the rest of the puzzle solved and move on. This has given us plenty of hope and has made us all a family again ..it has changed all of our lives.

Through the TV show, Find My Family, who got my details from your website, I was able to be re-united with my Birth Mother and family. A big thank you to Oz Reunion, I now know where I come from, which is very important. Thank you.

Tracy Stephens

Reunited with my birth mother after 54 years

Thank you Mike. Through registering on your site I was approached by the team from Find My Family which led to me being reunited with my birth mother after 54 years. We were reunited on April 4/5 2009 (April 5 being my birthday) I also now have a sister and brother and 7 new nephews. To those of you who are still searching please don't give up it is worth it in the end.


What a fantastic website

I had a listing on your adoption website. My son and I have just (last night) reunited successfully thanks to your reunion site. My listing in the ‘Adoption’ section of Oz Reunion was posted for a very short 5 months. What a fantastic website. Thank you Oz Reunion. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Ciao and thanks forever Trisha & Mark. Read their story: click here

God bless you for this

There is no way I could ever thank you enough!! Had it not been for Oz Reunion, chances are that my 'brother' would have remained dead, as I thought he was. Instead, because of Oz Reunion, I have been able to embrace my brother, to look him in the eye, and to know after 34 years that he's alive, and we can be together again, forever!! There may be miles, but there will never again be distance! God bless you for this. It would have never happened without your website. Watch the video: Click here

Such a great asset

I placed a notice on Oz Reunion quite a few years ago and since then I have found a Sister, cousins and an uncle. Low and behold, a couple of weeks ago I got an email reply from Oz Reunion and it was from my Brother. Wow, we are going to meet each other for the first time this week. I'm so excited. Thank you Oz Reunion for being such a great asset.
