1153d – Webinar – Finding Family On the Internet

There is not a single magical website that provides all the information needed to complete a search. Join Marilyn Mendenhall Waugh, search expert and previous president of the American Adoption Congress and reunited birth mother as she shares how internet family searches often require utilization of several websites.
