My mother and her sister were adopted many years ago and she has exhausted all avenues of getting a true birth certificate. She is now 72 years old and her mother has passed on also. Her sister (also now passed on) had a birth certificate of her own but my mother has never had one. The adoption was private - she was born in Chicago, IL. If anyone has any information on how to fulfill my Mom's wish of an actual birth certificate, I would appreciate any help. thank you.
I noticed your post is almost 3 years old and I hope it's not too late for your mother, but as you say she was born in Illinois I have some good news for you. As of January 2010 Illinois has changed it's laws on adoptee's obtaining copies their original birth certificates. Go to the website below and it should give you the info you and she need to get that precious piece of paper.

I've been trying for years to find information on the birth family of my great grandfather, Donald Burns Miller. He was born February 6, 1911 and died July 2001. Burns is the surname of one or both of his biological parents. I had some very vague information that part of his biological family was based in Philadelphia, but nothing came of that "lead" (Donald lived most of his life in south central Pennsylvania).
My husband has been told that he was adopted. I was able to locate a birth certificate from the county in the name he grew up with. It shows the parents that raised him as his birth parents. Before his mother died, she told him that she was not his birth mother, and that she got him from a foundling home after he was taken from his birth parents. We live in Nevada, his birth certificate states he was born in Nevada, does anyone know if birth certificates are changed at adoption?
My husband is 59, so it is safe to say that all involved in this adoption are no longer living, the foundling home has been closed for years.
Where should I start looking for records?
This discussion with him started when I started my family tree, he wants his leaf to be true.
Any suggestions on how to start this search will be appreciated.
