Lots of assumptions being made Peter, especially with a name like Davies.
The poster needs to go through the appropriate channel, as I said before to get an idea why he was adopted there may then be a very good reason why he wont want to make contact, or helped to understand his circumstances.

Do you remember playing with any brothers or sisters when you were living with your parents Simon?
I'm asking you that because I believe I may have located them. They have a son living with them who may possibly be a year or so older than you. I'll search a bit more and find his date of birth and where he was born then let you know.

Had a look before and went on to second page and only Regs last comment came up , when I went onto post date my comment came up as it was the last one, but funny enough it was not showing in page 2 even though, there was only the one comment from Reg on the page and loads of room left.
When I looked at the number of replies tot the thread . In my thread it said 21, when I went through the Finding Living Relatives page and found it, there is said replies 18, so I thought maybe GR had removed the comments, Weird or what must be gremlins at work ;-) Thanks anyway guys, just wanted people to know there are other places that can help as Norcap is now in limbo :-( :-

Perhaps Sheila has not noticed the second page?
Except that she has more than 2500 posts to her name, so I do not know what she means.

Your post has not been removed Sheila

If it had, then why? you can give links or names of other sites on here as long as you don't say it is better than GR

Family foot prints is easy to find on facebook


Sheila Report 25 Jan 2013 00:53

It looks like my post have been removed so if anyone needs further help or needs the link pm me.


Sheila Report 23 Jan 2013 20:37

As you have said Reg,since Norcap is sadly no longer an option it is good to advise other people onto a group that may be able to help.
The site I am on, is actually on Facebook, it is called Family Foot Prints.
The groups offers help and support for anyone who is trying to re-connect with their Birth Family.
This can range from adoptees or birth parents looking for their family members , to people who have lost contact with a member of their family over the years.
We offer practical help searching and support for those members who are looking, so if any one would like our help feel free to join.

Advice/info about other sites is not prohibited, and if, as you say, Norcap is no longer a viable option, it would be helpful to everyone to know of alternatives

In fact, you would be doing people a service if you posted a thread to that would save them advising the use of Norcap


Sheila Report 23 Jan 2013 14:11

Given the attitude towards adoption on these boards sometimes yes, also at one time you where not allowed to post the names of other sites on these threads, I assumed it would be better to send it direct.


Reggie Report 23 Jan 2013 10:02

Was there really a need to use PM for that, Sheila?


Sheila Report 22 Jan 2013 23:53

Sent info on an adoption support group for the poster ,as Norcap have now gone into administration.

Ogwr Register Office County Council Offices Sunnyside Brigdend Mid Glamorgan CF31 4AR


Unknown Report 22 Jan 2013 22:47

I found it in mid glamorgan.


patchem Report 22 Jan 2013 21:40

Ancestry has Ogwr in Essex, which could explain some of the problems I was having finding it. And just to confirm that she married as Davies, and no middle initials showing.
However, still cannot see your birth.


Unknown Report 22 Jan 2013 20:12

Just found some records when they married in 1983 at ogwr registery office

Its far and awy the very best way to go. You may not like some of what you hear , and its best to have them on side really. They will help you.

Best of luck.


Unknown Report 22 Jan 2013 13:23

I don't know that much. not even why they gave me up. I feel so lost. I will check that out thank you


Penny Report 22 Jan 2013 13:13

You need to go through the proper channels, contact your local social services post adoption Dept.

As you were 6 when you were adopted you probably alreagy know the circumstances but you'll still probably better off with someone from Social services on your side.

Gary Davies was born in 1956 and Amanda Davies was born in 1959. The last where abouts of Gary so I am led to believe is in Kent. he is a painter and decorator but don't know if he still does it. Amanda I have no idea where she is or does. I don't no any of my relations. so can't can't ask them. it would be nice to see them again.
