In 1964, a woman pretending to be a nurse kidnapped an infant boy named Paul Fronczak from a Chicago hospital. Two years later, police found a boy abandoned outside a variety store in New Jersey. The FBI tracked down Dora Fronczak, the kidnapped infant’s mother, and she identified the abandoned boy as her son. The family spent the next fifty years believing they were whole again—but Paul was always unsure about his true identity.

In 2012 Paul took a DNA test which disproved the story he'd been told about his identity--that he was "Baby Fronczak." In an instant, he became a man without a name, birthday or medical history--an "unidentified living person," in official terminology. Since then Paul has searched for answers looking for the real Paul Fronczak. "I'm on a mission," he says, "and I can't stop until I find out what happened."

Join us to learn how Paul uncovered his origins thanks to modern technology, the help of several experts, and the luck involved in matching relatives who had also submitted their DNA to genetic genealogy databases and were willing to help.

Paul Joseph Fronczak works for a non-profit organization dedicated to saving lives. He has worked at several colleges, helping people better themselves through education. The Foundling is Paul’s first book; the release date for True Identity is January 11, 2022.
