We really need your help. My dearest friend is trying to locate her birth
mother and/or family. Her son Just died of Cancer in his 40's. She worries for
her other children and grandchildren. Her birthdate is Sept 10, 1938.
Interestingly, in the family who adopted her has an older adopted son.
When the adopted son married, he and his wife adopted a son who was born in
New York on March 17, 1954. His birth mother's birth name is the same as hers.
She was adopted and brought to Chgo and given to her adoptive parents at a
train station when she was 4 years old. She was raised by this family til
adulthood, but was not legally adopted til she was 16.
We are hopeful that searching the birth records for these dates may shed some
information, but I don't know how to go about it. Please, please help.
