For quite some time I have been curious as to our family's true heredity. I say this in light of the fact that my biological Mother (birth name: Terrie Laverne Pierce), and paternal Grandfather (birth name: George Alson Pacific), were both adopted.
So far I have been fortunate in accumulating a tremendous amount of information from available information on the internet. Most of my research was done on the internet, through Ancestry.com and FamilySearch.org. Through these websites and their incomprehensible databases we may find information from censuses, birth records, marriage records, military records and much more. But the catalyst - and the key - for this research was the opening of adoption records from both of my relatives mentioned above.
So, where did we come from - really?
