Trying to find birth son and daughter

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date

Trying to find my birth son and daughter
Their names were Carl Leslie James Tudor and jade Marie Tudor
They were both born in Southampton and were adopted so their names may have changed
It would be great to get in contact with them both
I have tried looking for them both for ages


Christopher Report 6 Aug 2013 07:25

Please add me to the adoption data base

Would be more helpful if you could add the small details like the national adoption contact register url - many people haven't a clue it exists or know how to find it.

Info I found :-D

If you know the agency who handled the adoption, ask if they will keep a letter from you on your file.

Search Facebook for their birth names - sometimes adopted children will create an account in that, in the hope that biological family will find them.

Have you added your own, their and their mother's names to your tree? Although you aren't supposed to add the names of living people without their permission, sometimes you have to bend the rules!

Even if you are a free member and at some point no longer visit the site, make sure that GR always have your current email address. They are both only in their late teens/early twenties; if they have a good adoption, they may not feel the need to find birth family just yet.

Good luck

Both Carl Leslie James and Jade Marie Tudor are members of Genes born 93 and 94 respectively. You can email them.

How and where?
I appreciate your help


Devonlady Report 6 Aug 2013 14:11

Search top right hand corner, search all member trees and then fill in the names and on the right hand side Find out More send an email

Sorry Christopher

How and where what!!??


jax Report 6 Aug 2013 14:37

Carl's membership is about 5 or 6 years old and Jade's about 3 or 4

They could have changed their email address since then, but hopefully they have notified GR

By my reckoning Carl was only about 14 when he joined this site

Good luck

Just to add the Jade Tudor on here is not the one you are looking for,,,,,she is another one born a couple of years earlier in the same area


Christopher Report 6 Aug 2013 15:05

Thank you jax
The other jade is my niece
I'll keep trying

Posting again won't get any different results

Put your self on the national per URL posted 6th August

If these children are aware they were adopted, and have any interest in finding blood family, they may have done the same
