Hello,

I wonder if anyone can help me, I am writing an article about mother and baby homes/ unmarried mother homes for my university coursework. This is a subject which interests me very much.
I am hoping for people to contact me with stories and information i can include in my article.

Please help, best wishes,
Lauren

For a good insight, try the Salvation Army. There are some good reference links in the link below.

Still looking for answers about 262 Victoria Park Road but everywhere I inquire there is nothing to find. That is the same for my adoption records, absolutely nothing can be found. I realise I will never discover my birth circumstances, interestingly it appears the late Jeremy Beadle was born at St Margaret's aka 262 Victoria Park Road. If anyone has found anything more about this place please share. Thank you.

I was also born there in 1965
my mother was a young nurse from
Port Talbot. On my original birth certificate it had her name and address . This was back in the nineties that I rang the phone number I got from directory enquires and my grandmother picked up the phone , it never went any further. There is a terrace house
now at 262

Im interested in how DNA helps people identity their parents
We found out that my grandmother s birth father was of European Jewish origin so assumed the circumstances were for religious differences

Am helping one adoptee who has dna link to me
She worked out where her birth mother came from and we.ve narrowed down birth father to child of one of my grandfathers brothers...so I can tell her something about the circumstances of their grandparents was a Scottish family of ten their parents died young and some of them took the offers of cheap passages to USA .

If a birth family can be identified knowing profession. religion .location number of siblings etc can help make suppositions about reasons for adoption .

Have any of you had success with -? .
