I would like to know that too. (how to find my bio father)  I am adopted from the Willows that no longer exists now. I am told he went to high school at Bettendorf , Iowa.  I would assume he graduated in 1961 as he had already graduated from high school.  My information says he went into the Merchant Marines.  I know my birth Mom's name but she does not want anything to do with me.  (bio mom is Jean Ann Whan)
Depending on the laws of the state where you live you could contact the adoption agency where you was adopted they may have some pertinent information also you could contact an attorney who could help you get the information through the court. It also depends if it was an open or closed adoption it all depends on the state where you was adopted.

Avangelene --

If this is an adoption situation, you can contact our Adoption Angels project to see if they can help you.

I'll add the tag for their project to your question. :-)

p.s. I had to take off "Trujillo" from your tags since only 6 are allowed. Feel free to change that. I just thought it might help to get our Angels involved. :-)

Ohnesorge(n) is a rare name, and I am descended from a line of Ohnesorge(n)'s!!! (At a certain point, the "N" gets dropped.) I know it well. There have been some marriages in my line into Ruiz and Bernal, and some other  Latino names. They were in the Texas/ New Mexico/Arizona/Mexico area from the 1800's forward. Let me get my ancestor up on wikitree - (sorry sourcerers, I will attempt at fast sourcing) so you can see. Message me, if you think it could help, I would love to help you. I am only in contact with one family, but maybe we can work with search angels? I also have myself and my 1/2 brother and 1c1r DNA tested,  and we await my aunt's results. We are all from that line.

Your father's biological last name is Lopez. Sent you every inch I could find and the connection to Ohnesorgen too ;)
