I have Elizabeths birth cert which I ordered from GRO. There was never any contact with her after the adoption as far as I know. Apparently Elizabeth was the result of a one night stand with a man who was a "friend" to the man that Elizabeths mother married in 1949.Elizabeths mother was Lilian F Pearce and she married Walter Hill in 1949. He told her he would not marry her unless she had the baby adopted out, pretty harsh huh? I know what I would have told him! Lilian and Walter then went on to have one more child ,Carol, who was to be politically incorrect, born a spastic. This child died in her twenties. Family stories state this was Wally Karma. Apparently this would have been Walters second marriage when he married Lilian. I guess Elizabeths surname changed after adoption so I don't think I will ever find her. Thanks again. Linda

If she was adopted then you would need to know her new name.

Have you tried Search Trees to see if she is listed on anyones tree
