Carol smith 1940's Newcastle u/Tyne.
« on: Wednesday 14 November 18 08:53 GMT (UK) »
Hi All

We recently discovered my aunt born Carol Smith in Byker on 1940's was adopted from Newcastle Courts.  Her birth mum was M I Smith, my nana.  Does anyone have any information?  I am really hoping she is still alive as she has birth siblings and a wider family who would really like to meet her.  Any information would be really appreciated, time is marching on.  Thank you.

Hi Lisle and welcome to Rootschat this person is most probably still alive so you might be better to remove her name ...Rootschat does not allow searches for living people....have a look at the rules on the home page  ..You could maybe try Genes Reunited I think they have a page you can post on

Hi Lisle

Our guidelines for posting contains links for finding living people

http://www.rootschat.com/help/posting_guide.php

Unless you know her name after adoption there is no way of finding her by the normal methods.

If you haven't done so already, register with the GRO in the hopes that she is looking for her birth family

https://www.gov.uk/adoption-records/the-adoption-contact-register

or here

http://www.adoptionsearchreunion.org.uk/default.htm

or here

http://www.missing-you.net/categories/adoptions.php

The chatters here aren't trained intermediaries and adoptions were usually of a sensistive nature, any advice we give can only be general.

It might be worth asking the adoptions team at your local council if they can give you any advice.

Hi dawn

Sorry!   I should have checked the rules before I posted.   How do I  delete the message? Thanks for other links.   I have registered  with GRO but no luck .  I hadn't heard of the other sites so I will try them as well.

Hi Lisle

You don't need to have the topic removed as one of the other moderators has already taken out information which would specifically identify a person.

Your person of interest has quite a frequently-occuring name though which is why it remains.

She may also not be aware she was adopted or does know and has no interest in finding her birth family. As the adoption took place in the 1940's when attitudes were completely different to those nowadays, you have to respect her decisions.

Good luck with your search.
