Reuniting with Birth Family: How to Search for your Biological Relatives

We sometimes lose people, and not always because of fights, acrimonious relationships, or bitter feuds. While most families have patches of history they’d rather tiptoe around, there are many other instances where family members simply lose touch.

Tracking absent branches of your family tree can be a challenge in more ways than the obvious challenge of picking your way along a cold trail. Tread carefully around sensitive family secrets such as adoption situations or other taboo subjects, and do consider that perhaps cousin Hilda dropped out of sight for a reason.

Marcuzzi Espresso Coffee
