Researching and Writing a Family Legacy
by Judy Fambrough-Billingsley
Judy Fambrough-Billingsley is the daughter of a white German woman and a black American soldier, born shortly after the end of World War II. As a child she was adopted and brought to the United States. Judy grew up in Bakersfield, CA and taught school for many years.. Her personal journey and international research to find her birth parents is documented in her book, Too Brown to Keep: A Search for Love, Forgiveness, and Healing. She will discuss how she used DNA and other resources to find both sides of her family, how to leverage resources and verify information, and the lessons she learned in the process.
