If you were adopted, add yourself to the national adoption contact register

If you were born in 1972 she couldnt have been born in 1960.

If you were fostered then there should be a social services type file on you

Have you investigated who was living at that Madeley address - I assume your mother was resident there at the time?
How do you know her birthplace?


Stephen Report 1 Apr 2013 13:47

Hi thanks her birth place is on my birth certificate and last know adress at the time of birth

Hi Stephen I have sent you a private message...

Hi Stephen....have sent you a private message

Best of Luck



patchem Report 1 Apr 2013 20:43

Could Locater and Mistycat say whether their private message is just about the birth of Jennifer (1951?) or contains more information?


Mistycat Report 1 Apr 2013 20:47

Sorry Patchem.....didnt think!!

Mine was with a possible marriage in Shropshire....I couldnt spot Jennifer's birth


Edit....message has been read....


patchem Report 1 Apr 2013 21:06

Thanks, Mistycat.


patchem Report 1 Apr 2013 21:24

Was that 1974, Wrekin, to MIller?
If so, there is a marriage of Jennifer A Miller, 1979, Wrekin.
And then possibly another in 1993.

From looking at possible children, and possible births registered under 2 surnames, and looking at, I think she was showing with husband surname Baker, 2003 to 2006, or similar.
Will send pm


Mistycat Report 1 Apr 2013 21:43

Hi Patcham.....Yes thats the one


Edit...I see the one in 1979 and 1993 re Jennifer....Good find, Patcham
