Hi, I am Benoît Vermeerbergen.
I was born in Villers-Semeuse, France "Sous X". This means that my parents and especially my mother did not want to be known or found. My birth certificate literally only shows X's by my parents names.
Growing up I had a lot of questions trying to understand all of this. After my studies I purposely began working for the 'Population Services' in the hope of discovering more information about my birth mother.
During this proces and the years that followed, I helped so many other people in their search (for example, trying to find their biological birth parents), that I made genealogical research my main source of income. It has always been and will aways be my greatest passion in life!
