Family Research – English, Scottish and Irish Genealogy


RootsWeb’s Guide to Tracing Family Trees

Family historians who are adoptees themselves or encounter an adopted or an orphaned ancestor often require additional and special research skills in order to solve the puzzle. This research can be complicated by such factors as whether this event took place recently or several generations back, whether there was a legal, black-market, or an informal adoption, whether an ancestor was reared by foster parents (and whether the foster parents were related or unrelated to the birth parents), was placed in an institution or was part of various groups, such as Orphan Train Riders (American), Ragged Schools (British) or some other child emigration movements (Canada). for more click here
