Presented by Elizabeth Williams Gomoll, sponsored by the Minnesota Genealogical Society.

Description:
Finding an adopted person’s biological family is especially challenging for genealogists. This presentation lists the steps one can take to identify an unknown child, parent, or grandparent and dissects a successful case to show how good methodology combined with document research and DNA matches (and a bit of luck) can put a decades-old question to rest.

About the Speaker:

In addition to researching for clients across the country, she is co-editor of the Minnesota Genealogist quarterly journal and president of the APG Northland Chapter. Liz has served as a Director for the Minnesota Genealogical Society and the Swedish Genealogical Society of Minnesota. Her books, With Love to All, a collection of WWI letters and photographs, and the co-authored guide Husförhörslängder, Swedish Household Examination Records, have garnered several awards.
