Though the month is almost over, we are still celebrating National Adoption Month.
Learning about adopted ancestors, trying to identify the biological parents of those adopted and other challenges sometimes await those delving into the adoption stories of our family trees. Here are some resources to help:
- Finding Adopted Ancestors (Michael J Leclerc, Mocavo)
- RootsWeb's Guide to Tracing Family Trees – Adoptions and Orphans Research
- Adoption records and genealogy (Debbie Mieszala, FindMyPast)
- How to Handle Adoption in the Family Tree (Kimberly Powell, About.com)
Have you successfully researched an adopted ancestor? Share your story! Tell us what was most helpful to your research success.
