Ultimate Search Book

This all new 2011 edition of Lori Carangelo’s The Ultimate Search Book: Worldwide Adoption, Genealogy & Other Search Secrets, is the first new edition of this guide since 2002. As director of the organization Americans for Open Records, Ms. Carangelo has amassed considerable expertise in helping people, and especially birth parents, find their missing loved ones. Now, in the 2011 edition of The Ultimate Search Book, she shares the secrets to successful searching with a broader audience. Just how do search experts get past the wall of secrecy and roadblocks to their loved ones? How, in the case of adoptees, do they find someone without a prior knowledge of the name? It is these and other questions that this volume answers by providing "how to" search tips and resources--for free and for fee--for legally accessing information and for locating anyone in the U.S. and 200 other countries.
