Looking for brother born Aug. 27/54

Susan Report 27 Nov 2017 19:37

Named Frederick by birth mother, born in Toronto, adopted 195/55 by an English couple. Adoptive father born 1920, mother 1921. Married 1947, came to Canada 1948. Adoptive mother had done office & factory work prior to marriage. Adoptive father worked in the clothing industry in Canada & returned to England to become a partner in a clothing company. Family was looking to purchase a house in England.

There is a possibility the adoptive parents may have divorced, & that my brother may have remained in Canada with his adoptive mother, but that information is based on speculation only & not solid facts.

He may not know he's adopted...I don't wish to disrupt his life but would love to know what happened to him, as would our 89-year aunt before she dies. Our birth mother is deceased. I've been searching for a very long time & have had more than a few false leads. If you think this is you, please contact me. If this sounds like someone you know, please let him know.
