Hi Fitzey 1928
Am I getting muddled here ? I presume that you are talking about a couple who adopted you. Do you know their names and where they came from ?
Have you got their marriage certificate ? If so I would have thought that you could trace them from that. Amarriage cert. would have the names of their fathers on it and you could then look for their births. You should be able to get the certificates by using the reason - Family history. No further questions usually asked.

If you do not have that information, is there someone in the family that does.
If you then are still stuck. I am not sure where you can obtain that information unless you go through one of the adoption agencies.

We can certainly help you if you have the basic info,just post it into the correct forum and someone will help you

hi nainmaddie
yes you are muddled probably my fault. what it is.
is that my mother was adopted and now deceased and because of that we are not allowed any info only the adopted person can ask not the siblings and we want to be able to find our ancestors. if mr brown was in that situation i bet he would change the law. carol

Hi Carol..i can understand your frustration on this matter,i was braught up in council care that involved 8 years with foster parents from 2 till 10...then i was adopted for a short spell...when old enough the red tape and secrecy while looking for my real parents want very easy..i persevered and found them...along with 2 whole new families,though not getting on great with my parents now the love and help of my wider family has been really overpowering if not hard at times...in your case,and obviously thousands of others like you i believe there should be a panel to decide on every case after reviewing all the details,you see some cases are very sensitive,i lived with a girl in care who was a result of a serious case of incest,and theres lots of other weird cases ware the WHOLE family and relations could be devastated if certain details were made public,like in all cases in life the bad minority is protected at he expense of the good majority....hence i feel if cases are reviewed individually by people not involved in the family at all then at least some people,hopefully you would get the nod to go ahead and get all your info to help in your quest to know who your family are and were....unfortuanatly a system like this would cost big money on account of the numbers who would apply i fear that wont happen.....good luck with your petition and you never know it could be a start on getting the result in the future....regards Lee.
