I hope someone can help!!!
I have just discovered my maternal gt grandmother was apparently adopted!
She turned up on the doorstep of the people that raised her after I believe her mother died!!
Her name was Edith Maud Thomas born Barnstaple area c1878.
My cousin said her father's name was John Thomas we now don't know if he was her adoptive father or her real father.
Whether or not she was legally adopted?
and of course the possibility she was illegitimate!
Can anyone help at all of where I could start I have sent for her marriage cert will I know from that if she was adopted??
Regards Kim
