In Search of My Brother's Mother--An Adoption Story
by Beth Foulk
 
I always knew my brother was adopted. It wasn't a big deal within our little family.. So when our Mother passed, and the adoption files were uncovered after more than 50 years in the back of a closet, I couldn't have imagined the journey we'd embark on. Pull up a chair. I'll tell you the story....genealogy research and all.
 
As a professional genealogy speaker, I come to each speaking engagement  knowing I have the opportunity to share information and experiences about a subject I truly love. All of my classes are based on original research and filled with personal examples and anecdotes. I enjoy learning from the attendees when the circumstances permit.
