Adoption Genealogy Research with Larry Maurice
Monday May 15, 2017
7:00 PM until 8:30 PM
Locating information about an adoption in your family takes patience, good judgement and a broad knowledge base of laws, history and record types. Whether the adoption you are researching is for a modern day reunification effort, or a deceased ancestor you are trying to place on your family tree, successfully identifying birth parents uncovers the kind of rich and emotional family stories that genealogists love to collect.
Larry Maurice began adoption reunion searching in 1992, and was a member of a research and advocacy team that worked to open adoption records in NH in 2004. He has been a volunteer at the New Hampshire Vital Records Genealogy Research Room for twenty-five years, and is a contributing member of the American Canadian Geneaological Society in Manchester, NH. Come learn the basic steps of beginning adoption genealogy work and listen to some rich tales of reunion success and persistent brick walls.
