Unclaimed Persons (UP) celebrated its first birthday last week. This informal made an announcement (available at http://blog.eogn.com/eastmans_online_genealogy/2009/06/unclaimed-persons-solves-83-cases-by-its-first-birthday-megan-retires.html) at the time and also announced a change in management.
Roots Television now has a video that shows Unclaimed Persons in operation. Coroners welcome help from genealogist Megan Smolenyak to solve their Unclaimed Persons cases in this revealing look at a quiet but disturbing epidemic - bodies with no next of kin to claim them.
You can watch the video at http://www.rootstelevision.com/players/player_dearlydeparted3.php?bcpid=6936121001&bclid=6167510001&bctid=1569139347 or click on the image below.
