Finding out the giver of a Savings Bond

I received a saving bond as a gift. How can I find out the person or persons who gave me the gift?
I receive this question frequently, but the Treasury doesn’t have a system that has that information.
Is the Social Security Number on the Savings Bond yours? If so, that limits the giver to someone who knows your SSN.
If it’s not yours, it’s the SSN of the giver, which might give you something to go on.
Ask around; someone will take credit.
