Here is what fellow genealogists and family historians with their own blogs are saying about WDYTYA:

  1. Why not do a show on the the maternity homes that offered some 100,000 babies for adoption in the years from 1909 to 1964 in the state of Missouri. These babies were offered in ads in pamplets and newspapers like they were puppies. The state of Missouri stood by “while they claimed” that most of the records of the adoptees were stacked in the back yard of the Willow’s Maternity Home and set on fire.

    While there was a limo or taxi that met these young pregnant women as they hailed from the trains coming into the station in from all over the country. This is a big dark secret that Missouri Courts never wanted people to ask about as I found out trying to locate my own biological mother’s parents.

    I need help as do thousands of other people as to just what did the state of Missouri do with all the information on the children adopted. As you know if you need papers when doing geneology the standard joke is, “the court house burned down”.

    Please someone needs to do an investigated report of just what happen to all the information. I think the show “Who do you think you are”. Is a beginning but a show helping people that I have talked to that were dying and only wanted to have this same question answer could be also very empowering as most of us are not related to Henry VIII

    Finding my mother’s biological parents have sent me scurring all over the state.
