Hello, I am trying to find my grandmothers natural parents as I am told she was adopted. The name Mertl is on her death cert. as her maiden name, on the census records as Hempel her adopted name and she married a Vaclav (James americanized) Smetana born in 1875 in Bohemia and died in 1930 in Illinois. As a girl she lived in Minnesota, as a married woman she lived in Illinois. She was born in Bohemia in 1878 and I was told she came to the states in 1881, she died in 1938 in Illinois. I can find a passenger list with her name on it in 1881 but cannot prove it is her, and cannot find any census records with those parents names, nor their obituaries in any state. They did not die on board the ship... they just disappeared so I cannot prove or disprove this was her and her family. Her childrens names were Rose, Mayme, James Jr., Ernest, Anne, Katherine and Blanche. Her adoptive mothers name was Kate Matt who married Gottfried Hempel in 1881. She had half brothers and a sister whose names were Anna, Ferdinand, Fredrick, Lawrence and Jack. So if anyone is familiar with this, I would appreciate it if they would let me hear from them. Thank you in advance for any information you may hopefully have for me. Carol
I am trying to trace my Mothers birth and certificate. My Mother is believed to have been born in Thornton, Fife, Scotland but, she was brought up by David and Jessie Sutherland (both deceased) who lived at William Street, Fife, Scotland. My Mothers mother could perhaps be ? Gordon but, no-one seems to know, plus, there is no trace of her birth certificate under the name of Sutherland? My Mother was born on 18th Sept 1920 and died 10th Oct 1997 in Bedfordshire. Any assistance to solve this puzzle would be most gratefully received.
My name is Cassie, my maiden last name is Duffy ..... in 2007 before I got pregnant with my 3rd and last child, I had been emailing back and forth with a lady that had told me that my real name was Stephanie R. Arthurs.
I was born in Cambridge, Ohio at Guernsey Memorial Hospital on January 13, 1980.
I am looking for any information for Arthurs family in that area, since I have no clue of names, nothing. I would appreciate any info please.
I wonder if anybody can help, I am looking for some of my lost siblings if anybody knows the wereabouts I would be forever in your debt.
I am looking for a Beryl Janice Thomas Born on 02/02/1939 in Qld Mother Phyllis Lorraine Braby Father William Thomas. I have no other details about her if she was adopted or her married name etc. I do know that she wrote to a B Darwen about 10 years ago looking for her brother Edward Arthur Darwen.
I am also looking for Edward Arthur Darwen last know to have a shop in Ipswich Qld his date of birth is 09/12/1942 Father Edward James Darwen - Mother Phyllis Lorraine Braby / Thomas.
I am also looking for a Raymond Raine / Braby /Schlaminski he could be under any of the above names he was born in 1947 Parents Russian American Soldier (Schlaminski) - Mother Phyllis Lorraine Braby. He was brought up by Iris Braby / Mullens / Raine (Phyllis's sister) until he was about 18years old and learnt that she was not his mother and went off to NT and has never been heard of since. Any information would be greatfully appreciated.
There is probably more siblings that I have not yet learnt about so anybody whos mothers name is Phyllis Lorraine Braby, born Home Hill, Ayr Queensland around 24/08/1921 I would love to hear from you.
I'm looking for my mother's birth family. I believe she was put up for adoption in Los Angeles, California between 1934-1938. Her Birth father's name is Warren Ritchie/Ritchey. Her Birth mother was Dixie Cox-Ritchie/Ritchey. I'm guessing Ritchey might be right. Warren was Born in Texas, and Dixie was born in Nebraska. They would have been born before 1920. Anyway, reply if you have any links. thanks.

Hi did you try ordering the parents death certificates to see if another sibling signed them. There are a couple of trees on ancestry. You might need to follow the parents brothers or sisters to find out if anyone knows anything. Jen

Hi, my name is Loretta (Mary?) Moore. I was born Jan. 2, 1971, in Detroit Michigan. My brother Michael (Authur ?) Moore was born March 30, 1970, in Kittery Maine. We were in foster care in the 70's until we turned 18 in 1990. We would like to find out more about our family. We believe that our father and mothers names were Mary and Randall Moore, our parents possibly had several more children after were placed into foster care, last know address, possible -- Randolph Air Force Base in Texas, may have been in other service, not sure, know that the family they gave us to was near byto where they lived, but not sure. There are no hard feelings, just want to find out about family. My brother and I both have small families now, spouse and children, but would like to know so much more.
Also, want to find out medical information on the family. I had two children pass away before birth, and shortly after birth, second one had several medical problems, fistula in the treachea, as well as cystic fibrossis, and some other lung problems. Now I have a 8 yrar old daughter, she has several health issues as well, My husbands side is very healthy, so we feel that it is from the moore side. She has Allergies, chrinic asthma issues, two heart problems, an immune disorder that the drs cant figure out ( been sick almost 5 years and they cant tell us what it is yet) also she has a sleep disorder that is crazy. We want to see what we can find out, she needs to have some medical help, and be able to enjoy being a child. We really appreciate any help anyone can give us. Thank you in advance, God Bless. Lori
