Abstract: Family Law Quarterly Abstracts, Volume 44, Number 1 (Spring 2010): The authors, a law professor and a law librarian, describe two efforts by the Hague Conference on Private International Law to support its 1980 Child Abduction Convention -- intergovernmental meetings for States Parties and a website database of Convention cases. They identify important omissions and inaccuracies in the Conference's online materials, and then detail how researchers can best find the information they need. The authors also suggest improvements that would enhance the accuracy and utility of the Conference's online resources and the work products of the Conference's legal staff. Examples are drawn from research problems that became evident in Abbott v. Abbott, 2010 WL 1946730 (U.S. May 17, 2010), available at http://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/09pdf/08-645.pdf, a Convention case that was decided while this article was in press.
