i'm trying to find my birth mother Pamela Bessie Shaw . I was born Janice Lesley Shaw in 1958 , reg adopted Jan 1959. My name was then changed to Beth Nolan .
I was born in Davenport maternity hospital, Plymouth, and taken to Bath to be adopted. The last address i have for my birth mother is Eveas Cottages Plymouth ( not sure of the spelling) , i have been told that i also had an auntie who died of TB
If anyone would be able to help this would be appreciated
thanks.

Was she married at the time of your birth?

Do becareful banging her name on here, she has a right that her most private 'business' isnt broadcast.


Are you certain you were born with the surname Shaw?

Take a look at FreeBMD:

http://www.FreeBMD.org.uk/cgi/search.pl

You can see her birth in 1933 and she also had siblings. Put the mothers maiden name to find them.

Looks like you have siblings also. Do you know this?

The hospital you were born in was probably Devonport and not Davenport.

Garry's Father could be Pamela's brother.

Emilie is actually Beth Nolan's daughter?

Flip

Garry also has Bernard - Pamela's first husband. Must be worth trying to contact him.

Who told you there was no file/ no info on the file. Who actually applied for it? The person herself that was adopted or someone else?

Reply in the white box below- its so much easier

The adoptee (myself beth driscoll) applied for the folder from social services around 20 years ago , and they informed me that they could not find any information on my adoption. Have also tried a private investigator , however he was not that good , only found out as much as i have .

Hi Beth

I assume social services provided you with a copy of your original birth certificate? You need to contact them again and request your adoption file, it is a legal proceedure and there is a requirement for it to be kept and made available to you on request.

Have you checked out your possible siblings, mentioned earlier by Rose?
