im searching for any info on my birth mum(caroline ann perry) i belive she was born in summercourt cornwall and live in st austell any info would be greatfully appreciated, many thanx barrie x

It would be unwise to give info about her on here.

One assumes the lady is still living, which means that invasion of privacy would be an issue

I assume you were have you added yourself to the national adoption contact register? She may have done the same......if, by chance, she is hoping to contact you.

Where did you get your information from Barrie?


Barrie Report 3 Dec 2012 22:06

all info is what i have been given from adoption papers and notes and states on my birth certificate x

Hi Barrie.
Do you know how old she was when you were born, or have an address at the time?
Don't put on here obviously, just yes or no will do.
And have you tried the Adoption Contact Register as suggested by Reggie?

Possible birth in 1967 and marriage in 1988 sent.


Reggie Report 3 Dec 2012 22:49

What are you hoping to achieve, Barrie?


Reggie Report 3 Dec 2012 22:52

I do worry when info about birth parents is passed to adoptees, without knowing what they will do with it.

Are you certain she was born in Cornwall?

Hi Barrie,
Just a reminder that everything written on here is instantly Googled and appears on the Web for everyone in the world to read. It is much better to share adoption information by the use of a PM(private message).
I hope it works out for you,
