Genealogy Tip of the Day!
Adoptions Were Not Always Formal

Many “adoptions” were informal affairs where a relative or neighbor simply took in the child to raise as their own. There May have been no paperwork at all. In some times and locations there May be records of apprenticeships or guardianships‚ depending on the individual situation.

Professional Genealogist & Historian

Southern Oregon/Central Oregon/Southwest Minnesota/Germany
In all of us there is a hunger marrow-deep to know our heritage and to know who we are and where we came from.Alex Haley

Kevin Airrington has been a genealogist since 1998 providing genealogy research services tracing genealogy throughout California Oregon Idaho Nevada Alaska Minnesota West Virgina Ohio North Dakota GermanySweden England Norway and the West.

Although his roots are in Oregon he has lived in Idaho California Washington Kentucky Colorado Ohio and Germany.  In addition to his extensive research throughout the West he has provided genealogy research services for clients located throughout the United States from the east coast to the west coast to include Alaska California Florida West Virgina Louisiana Maryland Minnesota Missouri Nebraska Nevada New Mexico New York Oregon South Carolina Texas and Utah as well as Germany Sweden Norway and England.

Kevin’s interest in genealogy charts began while researching his own family and it became a way to portray his family history in a clear graphic manner.  Of equal interest to him is providing genealogy research services and providing a professional genealogy report.  Kevin views this as another important means of portraying the family history that brings it to life.  His reports include graphics explaining geographic and historic context and even a small chart has a way of finding its way into the genealogy reports.

Kevin has always had a passion for history especially American wars and Biblical History.   His grandfathers ancestors have been involved in nearly every American conflict!  From the Civil War to the Revolutionary War Kevin can find your ancestors  records…even hard to find records.

I believe that not only should everyone know where they are going when they leave Gods earth and they should also know where they came from. Says Kevin.

Finding your roots is like putting a puzzle together.  First you find all the side pieces and then you start filling everything in the middle in.  And sometimes you have to find a back door or side door because you never know what your ancestor May have been thinking.  Kevin reminds us.

One of the greatest treasures that God gave man is his family.  Both the family that he gets to live with see and enjoy everyday and the family that he gets to look back to and discover and wonder how and where they lived.  Never underestimate the love and emotion that grows in the human heart.  A memory is something that you can never take away pictures and documents keep those memories vibrant and alive.

Kevin makes his home in beautiful Southern Oregon.  He is a single father of 7 wonderful children.  4 of his children are grown.  He has 3 grandchildren.  Kevin says Grandchildren are Gods reward for not killing your kids when you really thought about it. 🙂  He believes that he is blessed by both his children and his grandchildren.  Spending time with his grandchildren are an adventure where his grandchildren affectionately refer to him as Pahpaw

Kevin is a published author and enjoys the outdoors and spending time with his family.  He is not afraid to get to work and is a diligent and tactful researcher. Kevin is working on a Masters in Theology.  He chose this discipline because of his love of history and because of his love of the Bible.
