In Response To: Re: Home for Unwed Mothers (joan dinnel)

Hey Joan - I have requested the contact info from the collections center at the Davenport library for the Iowa Department of Human Services. If their search has a cost to it, I will just wait to see what I hear from the collections center. At some point, I will go down to the historical building here in Des Moines and check newspapers. I do not think that my grandparents would have put anything about the adoption in their hometown paper, but you never know. I will also check the Davenport paper. To backtrack, I had the home that my mother was adopted out of do a search to see if my uncle was adopted out of the same home (the home was here in Des Moines.) They did not find anything and it cost $50. I need to exhaust all of my free sources before I pay any more. I did not get that lucky at the casino today!
