So, I've been a downloading & reading fool lately. Forgive the pun, but my Kindle has re-kindled my love of reading. Which is great - I have a lot of books to get through :-)
On the genealogy front, I did hear back from an adoption agency in Minnesota that stated I would need to send them my father's consent along with $30.00 to even look to see if they have the records. Okay....so my father and I don't really speak. He sends me the obligatory birthday card once a year, but that's about it. So I asked the Adoption Agency if my aunt could sign instead (same parents and I actually have a relationship with her). The answer? No. Seems a bit unbelievable to me. So not sure what to do now. I could petition Ramsey county (where the adoption agency is), but then again, if the adoption records were private they wouldn't have been released to the state. I'm one frustrated researcher.
