Hi there,

I know this is a complete long shot, but I am wondering if anyone can help or tell me I'm looking in the completely wrong direction, or perhaps where I could look.

My father was born & adopted in 1968, his birth mother was a lady called Janet Mary Bolton with her address' on his birth certificate of both the Brighton/Sussex area and Swindon/Wiltshire area but no date of birth or any named father. I have messaged anyone with a Janet Bolton in their family tree born between 1943-1952. But am still wondering what else I can find, he has applied for his adoption file but it currently can not be found.

Any reply to this would be great.

Kind regards

Little,,,,,,,,,, have sent a message with outlines of procedures,,,look for white envelope.......

Lauren,,,Files get moved when departments are relocated so they do get mislaid,,,,,,,

Is there anything else I could do in the mean time? Could anyone else be connected to her that we could try and look for? Or does it all now hang in the balance of 'missing files' to be found
