have you looked on FreeBMD for a possible birth would be Screen with mmn Screen if mum was a single lady

Reggie Report 1 Jul 2013 11:35

Advise the lady to add herself to the national adoption contact register..........

Are you in any way related?

Are you actually asking on behalf of the child's mother?

I suspect not, as your info is so uncertain..............

Not seeing any boys born around that time where the surname is Screen, as is the mother's maiden name.

There are some options for a girl though.

Carole Screen, 1936, is also in Keith's tree on here.
Have you contacted him?

Paula

Paula Report 2 Jul 2013 15:00

I am related to this person. I am not his mother, or asking on behalf of the childs mother, I realise this is a sensative issue. I have several births for a Carol Screen, but not in the area I was looking at. As the mother was young and unmarried I guess this birth could be anywhere.

Theres only one Carol M Screen born 1936 but no male child born for the years you are looking for,

Even if the child was adopted the birth would have been registered

Perhaps a search spelling Carole will show the right person,Paula,this may show the area you expected it to be and the right time frame of 1953/4------

Spelling her name differently may find another girl but surely the childs name will still be Screen. mmn Screen?

Hi Shirley, of course, but the OP as I read it gives mothers birth as in the 1950s?

There are some Screen/Screen births but later than 1952/4.

Paula

Paula Report 3 Jul 2013 11:49

Sorry didn't make dates very clear. Carol Screen was born in 1936, son was born in 1952/3

Kay????

Kay???? Report 3 Jul 2013 13:06

What evidence do you have to suggest there was child born?

are you related to the father by any chance.
there are a few possibilites.
-if the father was an active participant in the adoption process the bABY may carry his surname.
- if the mother did not see her baby , she may have been intentionally told the wrong information and in fact gave birth to a girl. Has happened enough times that this possibility needs to be considered.
- the child may have been registered with false information.
