christopher

christopher Report 29 Jul 2013 16:15

because my adopted mother told me she lived at 17 the prom and that was her address on my birth cert , but she must have come to Cheltenham to give birth to me , I don't know why

Have you looked on old electoral rolls for the addresses you have? These can be found at the library closet to that address.

What story did Ashford give you about your missing file? Try pushing them a bit more.
There are stories of members getting fobbed off about this.

Christopher some records over the years with departmental changes are often deposisted elsewhere,,,,try Gloucestershire Archive Office Alvin Street Glos to ask they have custody of any such records You wont get access to them but Social Services can apply.,,Back then you would have been handled by the Welfare as Social Services didnt exsist,,,,,,Welfare paperwork is very poor and carries very little indepth detail.

If any county boundary changes happended then records are often moved over to the other county.
