I think I can make some suggestions about adoption. Typically the exact birth day is not suppressed.
Depending on the age of the children at adoption, you have to ask, were they adopted out of a family that really didn't want to give them up but had to? Or a family that already knew before birth that they would be adopted out?

If the former than I would suggest birth announcements in the local newspaper. It may be a painstaking process but its the best shot for finding the real family name...
