After reading many postings think I should expand on my own. I'm a Devlin, born in Hackensack, N.J. Only info that I have about myself is my mother's name Amanda Margaret Develin. I was taken from her when I was three by the state. According to record she was 29 when I was born, certificate says illegitimate. I don't know her place of birth. Evidently she spelled her name Develin, but somehow my name was changed to Devlin when I was put into the system. It wasn't until this week, thanks to genforum, that I learned about the Develin/Devlin connection. So my search is beginning--hopefully there's someone out there that I'm related to.I'm in my 60's and it would be so great to leave my son and grandson a tree on my side instead of the twig we sometimes joke about. Any help that you have would be very much appreciated. Thank you GenForum.
