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.

  1. Ugh, bureaucracy… There's no leeway in that, all they do is follow what's written down on their instructions sheet. Good luck!

    yay on the reading front!
