Following the phenomenal success of popular website "Friends Reunited", which puts old schoolfriends back in touch, the creators have launched a new website called "Bastards Reunited".
The website aims to reunite all those illegitimate children of feckless fathers, who thought they were alone in the world, with their scattered siblings. Having conducted several surveys it seems that most fathers who sire children outside of marriage, will probably have a couple more tucked away too, all oblivious to the existence of each other.
Users are asked to register with "Bastards Reunited" and input the name of their parents, if known. If unknown the date and place of birth can be added to a search feature which will match you to likely fathers from that area.
The site also offers a service for finding step-siblings, another blooming branch of current society and instead of a "family tree", the website suggests building a "family hedge" of siblings, suspected siblings, step-siblings, step-parents, suspected parents etc.
Single mothers everywhere have welcomed the move, hopeful that they can at last determine who fathered their child and get some maintenance money.
