July 7, 2010

An interesting campaign here by adoptees in various USA States to gain the right to obtain their original birth certificate. Anybody know the position in the UK?

    I believe that the adopted child can obtain a copy after they reach 18.

    Adoptees have been able to obtain their birth information and receive help in tracing their parents for many decades, similarly in Australia.For no fee!

    Thanks John and Von. What about Canada where a lot of UK child migrants were also sent? What about Ireland from where a lot of babies were adopted in an earlier era? Anybody know?
