Can you help me locate my adoption record?
Hello at the Family Search Community,
I was born, on November 20, 1956, in Paterson, Passaic County, New Jersey. My mother’s name was Martha ***. At that time, she was not married, and my real father’s name was Andrew ***.
I have a copy of my mother's and stepfather's New Jersey Marriage Record stating they were married in June of 1957. I was seven months old. at that time.
My younger half-brother was born on March 21st, 1958, in Paterson, also. That was one year and four months after I was born. If my mother was pregnant for the regular nine months, then, nine months before March of 1958 will be June of 1957.
By common sense, my mother and stepfather got married after she found out she was pregnant in June of 1957. They were married in Paterson, Passaic County, New Jersey.
Since my mother's maiden name was ***, I do believe my last name, prior to when I was adopted, was ***, too.
Can you help me locate and get a copy of my adoption record?
