"Grandma Was Adopted? Using Adoption Resources and DNA Testing to Build the Family Tree"  (GSWC Meetings - Programs)
1:30 pm
Education Center Auditorium, St. Joseph Mercy Hospital Campus, 5305 Elliott Dr., Ypsilanti, Michigan
Presented by Bethany Waterbury
If you have an adoption or unknown parentage event in your family, you know how challenging it can be to fill those branches on your family tree. Depending on the state and time period, adoption records can be extensive or non-existent. Increasingly, genealogists are successfully turning to DNA testing to work around restrictions on access to adoption records. This talk will explain which records are available to genealogical researchers during different time periods and provide information to determine whether DNA testing might provide the answers you are looking for.
