At the moment I am trying to find my biological grandma, Margaret O'Flaherty. We think that she was born in about 1940 in Ireland and was 16 when she gave birth to my Dad in London. Obviously, as an unmarried Catholic, housekeeping for a priest at the time, she was in a very difficult position and she gave my dad up for adoption. However, that is all the information we have. I was hoping somebody would be kind enough to give me some idea of what to do next and how I might go about finding her? Thanks for any help.
