SKCGS General Meeting: L Larkin presents "The Hicks Babies"
9:30am - 10:00am PT - Social time (sign in early to chat)
10:00am PT - Dr. Leah Larkin presents "The Hicks Babies"

From the early 1950s to the mid-1960s, Dr. Thomas Hicks ran a community health clinic in McCaysville, Georgia. On the side, he mediated illegal adoptions, selling hundreds of newborns on the black market to couples who couldn’t have children of their own. These so-called “Hicks babies” have no paper trail to document their true parentage. DNA testing has allowed many of them to reunite with their biological families. Three case studies will demonstrate effective research strategies for unknown parentage searches using DNA.
