Looking for Ms Boyd born Ireland 1950/ 51

Claire Report 27 Jan 2012 02:17

Hi I'm trying to find my Biological Mother. I have little information other than her name is Boyd, born in 51 or 52. She was a librarian from Dun Laoghaire.

She went travelling to Israel in 1972/3 met a Latvian man from The French Foreign legion and had a relationship. She left & went back to Ireland where she discovered she was pregnant, couldn't get in touch with the man as he has left the Kibbutz already.

She had me, her daughter, named Claire Boyd in Dorking in October 73 & put me up for adoption.
Any and all help or information would be gratefully received.
Many thanks :-)
