My mother's name is Darlene Amelung who was taken to the Monroe County Wisconsin School for Dependent Children in Sparta, Wisconsin after her birth in 1934. She has always maintained that she is Native American, but we have no birth records, or adoption records. She was "adopted" by Albert and Emma Amelung in Ashland WI in or around 1937. There is no on line data about her since the 1940 census data won't come out till April 2012. Does anyone know what Sparta was like in 1937? Any suggestions on how to find out about my mother's residence @ Sparta? We do not know her mother or father's name.
