Genealogy is too often overlooked as a way to help find birth family. Even people who do not have a name but do have lots of information about the family and know for sure where they were from have benefited from using genealogy resources. The 1930 census is now available and that is a boon to many. Using the following links may give you ideas on ways to find your family.
If you do know the family name then studying death notices can help to trace the family through the lists of survivors in a newspaper. Funeral homes have copies of death notices as they usually prepare the notice for publication.
Cemeteries can be a way to get more information as they have the name of the family contact person in their file.
Cemeteries some early marriages, deeds etc.
