Looking for a living person
« on: Monday 04 April 22 14:26 BST (UK) »

Can anyone help me trace a * *  born in  1962.  Her mother's maiden name was *.  She was adopted soon after she was born and her sister then aged 5 has never had any contact.  She would love to know what happened to * and where she is today.

Hi Mark,

I'm very sorry but we don't allow details of living persons on RootsChat to protect their privacy.

Perhaps somebody might be able to give you an idea in general terms on how to find out, without giving out her actual details.

Sorry about that - I hope you fid her.

All the best,

Hi Mark

Unless you know the name after adoption, there is little chance of finding her through the normal channels.

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

or here

or here

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