Hi Frances.
I can see the birth you mean, in Staffs. Is this where you got her mother's name from, or do you have another way of knowing this?


brummiejan Report 22 Apr 2012 19:03

There is a likely marriage for the above Rosemary. I can PM it to you, but you really need to confirm the birth of your mother before pursuing this.
Do you have access to complete adoption records?

Frances. if you don't mind, I advise you to contact social services and request access to your adoption file. This will give you much more information.
You might also put your name on the national Adoption Register, in case other family members are looking for you.

The charity NORCAP can also give you lots of advice:

I wish you loads of luck, hope you succeed in your search.
