Well I was adopted and found.I have been building this family tree to answer two questions that I have had. Who am I and Where did I come from? My Birth mother's side explores Spanish and Native American backgrounds, while my birth father's side explores English and more European background. So I am in between.
Also note that while I try to verify each entry, I will make mistakes. When and where I see there is a question, I will note it. I am not proving in order to get into a society or club, but trying to prove where I came from.
Note: I have uncovered another questionable connection. I have Susanna Harlow b. 1704 married to Robert Priddy b. 1695. While these seem to be correct, Susanna's Parents are in question. I will be researching this.
Note 2: I have what I believe to be Susanna's family correct. I removed her ancestors. and starting the corrected ancestors. darn...
Note: it is listed a William Wing Salisbury married to a Bethia Carpenter. This turns out to be a FAKE ancestry record. William is fine, don't know who he married.
A little about my being adopted. It was made known from the beginning that I was adopted, so I always knew. My adopted parents and the entire adopted family loved me very much and never made me feel anything other than being a member of the family. So much so that they were always supportive of me finding out my birth family. Since being found, I have learned that when the birth family knows there is a child out there, there is a warm and happy reunion waiting. If not,it will be slower. I cannot push the issue, I just have to be open and accepting.
I have discussed with both the Adopted and Biological families, that I know who my Mom and Dad were, (they have sadly passed, as well as my Biological Mom and Dad) and that this is not a replacement family, rather an additional family.
