Geborener Deutscher was published as a quarterly periodical from April 1988 through the end of 2002. Its purpose was to give a voice to the community of German-born adoptees in the United States by providing a medium for publicizing its existence and concerns. This purpose was accomplished through the publication of stories of search and reunion from readers and search advice. It also included reprints of reunion stories and other relevant articles from more mainstream magazines and newspapers, as well as cartoons that dealt with adoption-related issues, generally. Publication ceased when it became more and more difficult to find sufficient relevant materials to maintain its quarterly publication schedule. Below are facsimile copies of each of the 57 issues of the newsletter as they appeared during the course of its active life.
