ADOPTION HELP
Posted by: hope gifford (ID *****7652) Date: June 15, 2005 at 20:38:47

Hi, I am looking for information on my friend's adoption.

He was born on March 19, 1968, Johnson City, Broome, NY. He knows he was born in a hospital there in Johnson City and that his birthmother named him James at birth.

He was called "James L." so he has reason to believe that "L" was her maiden name initial.

He was the product of an affair. His mother was married to someone else and they had children in the early '60's.

My friend knows that his birthmother's husband, released him for adoption at birth, although he was told she waited a year before she released him. My friend was adopted 13 months after his birth in April 1969 through the state and adopted by a family living in Norwich, Chenango, NY.

The question is...where does he begin to look for records on his unidentifying information on his birthparents?

Thank you for any help you can give.
