Joseph Garrity C1944 Lancaster adopted

I have had a look on the internet but can see no search for Florence by Joseph.
Best to find where in Lancashire dealt with his adoption & ask to place a letter perhaps from both your mother & yourself, in his adoption file.

But I would think if he was interested, he would have looked before now. :-S

If you email me his date of birth, I will sadly have a look if he has passed away.
You can, if registered correctly, try to trace a person through their DOB from approx 1969 to 2006, via their death.
Not an accurate way, but then you see if a birth was registered in that name.

Hi Rose. On his birth cert it is Joseph Garrity. I can also confirm that he is my Uncle as his mothers name is Florence May Garrity on cert and address is the same as nanas address until she was 75 years old. He was born in a private Nursing Home, my mum thinks this may have been paid for by the RAF

I see in your tree you have added him with surname Garrity/Garrety .

The problem with this is that people searching under the name Garrety will not find him.

Hi Vanessa,

Thanks for the update. Is the name spelt Garrity or Garrety
on the birth certificate?

Hi All. I have finally received Josephs birth certificate and it is the Joseph born in Lunesdale. According to birth certificate he was born in a Nursing home in Hornby and it also says on his birth certificate Adopted. Mothers maiden name is correct and it is the same address as my grandmother lived at for many years. Only problem have registered with adoption service and so far no luck. Is there any other way to look for him?

Hi Rose. Thanks for info. I am going to get the Garrety birth certificate, maybe a mistake was made in the spelling. Will let you know what happens. Vanessa :-)

Vanessa,

I'm certain the Garrety birth is the one you need. The time, area and maiden name all matches. Don't waste money with the Jones cert.

I will check the Garrety one first and see what I can find out. Thanks for advice Vanessa :-)

Lunesdale covered areas around Lancaster - if you look up the Joseph Garrety birth on freebmd and click on Lunesdale, you will see a list of the areas it covered; maybe one of them will be familiar.

Your mum may have meant that your great aunt was the informant for the birth registration - I would get the Garrety one first.

Hi Mum told me that my great aunt Alice registered Josephs birth and her married surname was Jones. It seems that there could be two possibles, but I think the Jones might be the correct one as he was born in Lancaster and I don't know the district of Lunesdale? I think I might try both names and see what I can find out. :-)

Vanessa acknowledged the Joseph Garrety birth on the 15th August
but it seems she is happier with the other birth :-S

Hi have found some more information about Joseph. He was registered as Joseph Jones born 2nd qtr 1944. Registered under my great aunts married name of Jones and mothers maiden name of Jones in Lancaster, Lancashire. He was taken to an orphanage as soon as he was born called Nazereth House and adopted from there soon after. I have added my name to the adoption contact register. Is there anything else I can do?

I am trying to trace my Mums Half brother. Born in Lancaster, Lancashire in C1944. He was adopted when he was a few months old. Very sad story. Birth Mother was called Florence May Garrity nee Tague. Please help. Thank you
