Adoptee Access to Records – Ohio’s New Law

As an adoptee having made the journey to a successful reunion on her own, Betsie Norris, founded Adoption Network Cleveland to provide support and assistance to others who are touched by adoption. She’s a frequent spokesperson in the media and at conferences and has assisted in thousands of adoptee-birthparent reunions. She is co-author with Jayne Schooler of Journeys after Adoption: Understanding the Lifelong Process, has served as a board member of the national American Adoption Congress from 1997-1999, and currently serves on the board of the Donaldson Adoption Institute in New York City.

Betsie has worked tirelessly on legislation to reform Ohio's adoption laws. As a result, in March of 2015, Ohio became the 12th state to open previously closed birth records to adult adoptees, allowing 400,000 adoptees adopted in Ohio’s formerly “closed” period of 1964-1996 to have access to their original birth certificates. A short film, An Adoptee ROARed in Ohio: The Betsie Norris Story by documentary filmmaker Jean Strauss, will be shown and discussed along with the social and historical context of the old and new laws on this topic. Learn about Ohio’s journey and how implementation of the new law is going and share your questions and thoughts about the issues involved in this area of genealogy research.

This program will take place in Meeting Room 2, High Street Level, Main Library.

Solving for Unknown Parentage – DNA Basics

Amanda Reno is an independent Genetic Genealogist focused on offering support and education to people within the genealogy, adoptee and unknown parentage community. Amanda was reunited with her older sister after being separated by adoption for nearly 30 years. The amazing journey that brought them together and their instant connection once reunited inspired her to help others. When she learned DNA was being used to provide answers in some of the most seemingly hopeless cases, she knew she wanted to learn how. Employing her love of data and research, insatiable curiosity, and desire to connect with others, DNA has now become her passion. Her talk will focus on the basic core knowledge required to identify an unknown parent(s) using genealogical DNA testing and traditional research techniques.

This program will take place in Meeting Room 2, High Street Level, Main Library.
