Mike,

Is Norman S Underwood the father listed for the son born in 1952?

I see the image for John W Burch and the reference matches Norman S Underwood. Can't help but think there was a typing error and it should be Jean M.

I see another marriage for Norman in 1973, not long after Jean remarried.

Do you have addresses from the marriage in 1971?

Hi Rose,
Just rechecked the birth cert and as I thought there is no father listed for the son. It has just been left blank for some reason, I think you're correct, it must be a typo. I've not seen the other marraige for Norman but then again I've not been looking, I'll have a look now.

Cheers
Mike

Mike,

A tip that might help:

If you view the birth recordimages on Ancestry, there should be an S at the end of the page number for an adoption. This seems to be the case for births from the 60s to the 80s.

Odd that there's no father listed for James as his birth is registered the quarter after the marriage.

Rose,
That is a great tip, my wifes has a S at the end of it and I couldn't work out what it meant. I spent many hours on google trying find out what the S stood for and could never find out.. Now I know, thankyou.

Mike,

To start with you said the sister was born "around 1971", but later you say it was 1971. Do you know for sure it was 1971?

Rose

Michael

Michael Report 7 Aug 2011 01:42

It is odd, as all the other children including my wife have the father listed.

There is someone with Norman in his tree on this site. Might be worth sending him a message.

Mike,

I've never seen anything written about the S, I just noticed the pattern started appearing around 1961/1962 and goes up until 1984.

Rose

Michael Report 7 Aug 2011 01:55

Yeah sorry Rose it was 1971, not sure why I said around 1971. I'll have a look for the tree, did you find it under Norman Underwood or Norman S Underwood? suppose it doesn't make a difference really, I'll go and look now.
Thanks

I only found one birth in 1922 for a Norman S Underwood.

Hi Rose,
Just looked at the birth record for Norman S Underwood 1922 and found the tree with him in. Just sent a message to the tree owner. Thanks for finding that out for me, I haven't really been looking at the Underwood side of things but you never know it could be the way to solve this mystery.

Thanks again
Mike

Have sent pm with two possible names. If these are no good you should get in touch with social services again and ask to speak to somebody that deals with adoptions and ask them to locate the records for you. Also has your wife registered with Norcap and the national adoption society
