Searchable historic records are made available on FamilySearch.org through the help of thousands of volunteers from around the world. These volunteers transcribe (index) information from digital copies of handwritten records to make them easily searchable online. More volunteers are needed (particularly those who can read foreign languages) to keep pace with the large number of digital images being published online at FamilySearch.org. Learn more about volunteering to help provide free access to the world's historic genealogical records online at FamilySearch.org/indexing.

I was given information a few years ago that my aunt gave birth to a baby girl when she was about 25 years old! The baby was born in albuqueurque, New Mexico. I don't have any details about the adoption! I believe that the child made an attempt to locate my aunt. However my aunt rejected that attempt. My aunt is deceased now and I feel like I would like this cousin to have an opportunity to know some of this family history. I can only guess at the year of birth. The birth mothers name I know is Mary B Ricks. She has 4 children however I don't believe they have any interest in finding this person! I just feel that my age is 64 that I would want to know my history. This baby would not be my age but close!
