Woman to speak about finding biological family 70 years after adoption


The American Jewish Experience Lecture Series, presented by the Jewish Historical Society of Central Jersey, continues for its 21st consecutive year with a presentation by Sandra Lanman, entitled “Finding Family, Part II: the Search for Unknown Altstedter.” In 1997, Lanman found her mother’s biological family, 70 years after, and an ocean away, from where she was placed for adoption. She has also located family and friends of her father, separated by the Holocaust.

The lecture will be held at 10 a.m. on Nov. 13 at Jewish Family Services, 52 Concordia Shopping Center, Monroe Township.

A donation of $2 is requested at the door.
