Adoptions: Bloodlines and Heartlines

Adoptions: Bloodlines and Heartlines

Are you researching your family tree and come across an adoption?  Or perhaps you have done a DNA test and discovered family members you never knew existed.  What if your family surname is not your bloodline?  There are a number of scenarios that would involve relatives placed in another home or disappeared from a family genetic tree.

For June, we will be discussing Adoptions: Bloodlines and Heartlines.  Heartlines are adoptive, foster or other non-genetic families.  Bloodlines are your genetic family tree.  Sometimes finding the connection to a genetic family tree is hard when an ancestor is given up for adoption.  Or maybe there are other factors.  The Genealogy Discussion Group will discuss how families with ancestors in these circumstances can find clues to their genetic ancestry.

The Genealogy Discussion Group meets on the third Tuesday of each month from 10 a.m. to 12 noon in the Genealogy Library at the Old Jail Museum.  For more information contact librarian@kosciuskohistory.com.
