Since sperm is easily frozen, the sperm banks can generally serve the Lebanon, New Hampshire area in addition to the rest of the USA.

While sperm banks typically will facilitate communication for medical reasons, it may prove logistically difficult or impossible to locate the donor many years down the road. My mom and my grandmother - they're always making sure that I knew the parents of who I was dating.
