Subject: [OHLOGAN] ADOPTION PERTAINING TO GENEALOGY
Date: Tue, 26 Jun 2001 08:20:45 EDT
I'm writing today regarding Adoption Searches, as to how one may apply it to
Genealogy Research. Most adoptees and/or birthparents and other extended
family eventually search for their missing family members. As a reunited
adoptee myself, I now help others to search and reunite. I am often hired by
birthmothers and siblings of adoptees to locate their missing/lost family
member for them.
Adoptees are very concerned with past generations of family history. Even
tracing death certificates is quite helpful to an adoptee when filling out a
medical history form in their doctors office (those who haven't traced their
family of origin have nothing to write on their health forms).
The state of Ohio has a Birth Index and Supplemental List. My information
covers 1959 through 1989 and was purchased through Vital statistics in
Columbus, Ohio. Those who require assistance may contact me directly.
Birth Indexes list all babies born on a given DOB in any area of Ohio, used
by adoptees to learn their name at birth, enabling them to locate their
family of origin.
Supplemental Lists are the name changes or amended names of the adopted, used
by birthmothers and other family members to locate an adoptee by their
current adopted name.
I'd like to invite anyone with an interest in adoption to join my Ohio Triad
Reading the archived digests will provide links and addresses to information
concerning Ohio and the many public records available.
Information, resources, databases are available at very reasonable cost.
