I am also birth mom (gave a son for adoption 11 yrs ago..1986). To learn more about my experience and others please visit the adoption page.

My Greatest Genealogy Resource So Far

I got a lot of info from Nancy Troxel at the Portage PA Historical Society and then passed the info on to Brian a Professional researcher. He has found about 600 ancestors/relatives of mine that I didn't even know about dating all the way back to the year 1755 and he's still finding more! If you have research you need done in the Cambria or Somerset counties in PA I suggest you write to Brian, who has access to census, courthouse, wills, old newspapers, microfilm, does cemetary searches and more! He's really dedicated to his work and seems to love the "hunt"!

To find researchers in other areas check out the RESEARCHERS LIST.
