Hi Robert:

We too are looking for anyone that may have information on the Bouvier family. The only problem we have is that we have so little to go on. You see, my husband was adopted as a baby and never given any information. By doing research over the past 40 years, we were able to come up with the following information. We found that his mothers name was Elaine Bouvier (at birth) and she was born in Maryland. She married a man named John Goudie and 5 years after his death, had given birth to my husband. At the time she conceived my husband, she lived in San Diego but went back to Maryland to give birth to him. After giving birth, she returned to San Diego. A year or so later, she became ill and decided to give my husband up for adoption. He is now 58 years old and lives in pain everyday of his life because he has no idea what his true roots are. Last year he had a heart attach and I would give anything to find someone from his natural family before anything worse happens. If you can give us any information or if you have Elaine's name on any records, we would be so greatful to you if you would share the information with us. We also believe her father was a Doctor and she had a brother named Philip whom she named my husband after and from what we understand, he was in the Canadian Airforce.

I would like to thank anyone that can help out in advance. It truly is greatly appreciated.
