Re: George Berg - adoption

In Reply to: George Berg - adoption by Mary Bronson of 15644

I can't help you directly but can give some advice from my own experience in looking for a child my grandmother gave up in Nebraska. If the birth and/or adoption took place in Nebraska, it will take a court order and a specific reason (i.e., health related) to get any information. You must also be a direct line descendant (i.e., daughter, son) of the person you are researching.

He could have been born in either Illinois or in Nebraska, or anywhere in between. Without more hints or details to go on, it will be difficult to locate records. If his adoptive surname was Berg, I'd try to locate siblings or relatives of his adoptive mother and see what they know. (Turns out my great-great-aunt knew all along about my grandmother giving up a child, and knew who the father was.) Hope this helps a little.
