From Library Journal:

Citing the minimal (often critical) need of identifying family medical histories, Klunder, himself an adoptee, offers a compendium of advice and encouragement for adoptees, adoptive parents, and birth parents to sharpen and strengthen their skills at locating blood relatives with whom connections had been severed by the relinquishment and adoption process. Almost three-fourths of his book consists of state-by-state directories of agencies and services (official and volunteer), contacts and tips, sample letters of inquiry, and suggested readings. While Klunder's work would have benefited from more careful editing (at least two text lines are missing; punctuation and spelling errors are frequent), the information sources he provides should be useful, particularly in public library or social agency settings.
