Hello I am researching my family history, and I have not had any luck trying to connect to my true biological birth mother or father. I was adopted from the Convent of the Sisters of Mercy in Brooklyn. I was born in 1960, in Manhattan. My last name listed on the adoption court papers is DUCHESNE. I would like any legitimate information that interested parties may have. I realise the implications involved, and I am not trying to invade any persons privacy. I simply want to know if this family wants to make connections with me. More importantly, I would only want to benefit from a health history standpoint. I have been blessed with great health so far. So I will close for now and hope for whatever GOD will grace me with for the rest of my living years.
