I have tried almost everything I can thing I can think of but that brick wall is getting higher and higher. some one somewhere must know something about Arif Mustafa Armstrong born in march 1957 and Irene Farrell born march 1929
I would really appreciate any information however small.
Thank you so much

Does his birth certificate say adopted on it?

If Irene remarried, perhaps he stayed with her and took her new surname?

Thanks for replying Rose, Arif was adopted soon after birth, as for Irene she may have remarried I just don't know :-( I have been searching now for about 30 plus years and not getting anywhere !!

I see your dad remarried in 1964 so there could be a marriage for around then.

Irene had a brother John. Have you tried tracing him or her parents deaths? She could be an informant.

Have you followed the advice about adding yourself to the adoption contact register?
