I asked Amanda to remove her comments as it does relate to recent records

More twists and turns :-)
I received a reply from my dad after he got over the shock of receiving a letter from me after all these years. He was overjoyed to hear from me and has thought about me as he said all my life and often wonderd how I turned out if I knew about him. He also revealed that I have another sister who lives in Holland as he left Wales to work in Holland after he and my mum split. So now I have to wait for him to send me details about my sister before I can start to trace her. My question is does anyone know how you go about accessing the birth records for Holland Please?? :-)

I am pleased that you have made contact with your Father, and that it is a happy outcome.

I suggest you just ask on Genealogy Chat for information about records for Holland, as, that way, if you title your request to include the word Holland, someone with relevant knowledge may be able to give you advice.
