You are researching the origins of your father, born 1935. Is your father alive?

Your father knows that you are using a public forum?......and he has agreed to this?

Do you have his birth record..........the document?

Yes I am aware it is public. At this stage I just need resources to find information. Also if someone has anything and It does concern any names then I will be using PM.
Thanks

[Note: there is mention of an adoption in the documents.]

Hi Wendy

 ... just wish to point out that the "adopted person" referred to in the above record -  and mentioned too in an attached Will filed with these papers, is a man who was born in the year 1921 - and who married in the early 1940's.

[There are ample records available to substantiate this finding -  although in some instances there are slight variations in spelling of a forename and the surname. ]

Added for clarification ... and so you don't go "barking up wrong trees".   ;)

Thanks will look into it. The child (my father) was not put into child welfare but was raised by his grandparents.
He wasn't formally adopted but legally fostered.

Hi again Wendy ... just in case you misunderstood why I'd posted in response to the "Letters of Administration" record.   ???

It was to "eliminate this adopted man, whom a number of records show, was born in 1921"   (and you'd already stated previously that your father was born 1935. )
