    If she was adopted in England or Wales see here for advice about how to go about it. This service is not yet available in Scotland

    Relatives of adopted adults now able to trace family tree - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)

    Sorry I can't help with the Nazareth House bit.

    Hi

    I am trying to find any information for my mum who has sadly passed away but was at Nazareth House from 1941-1946

    My mum was adopted aged one but her adopted father was in the army and she had stay at the orphanage until she was five, her adopted name was Mavis Fenwick

    We are trying to find her original birth certificate and name but also if any members remember her

    Any help that would be great

    Thanks

    Sandie

    Thanks Vera I have found it now. She comes on quite regularly (4 days ago) but following her husband backwards it looks as though he was born out of wedlock too but not under the name Giles and not in an area associated with these Giles as far as we know..... so a puzzle. Also, no marriage found of a Giles to her husbands surname.

    I assume you meant the one in 1937 Vera? I can't find a tree on Ancestry that her listed though.

    Thanks I didn’t know that. Didn’t even know the register was taken in Scotland. Thought it was only England and Wales. I will go to new register house myself and check this out. ?

    Yes, adoption law means the husband, even if he is not the father, has to sign away his legal right.

    Added - the 1939 register for Scotland is available in Glasgow and Edinburgh for personal research.

    Misread your message OC. the baby was born prior to the marriage but the adoption did take place after, approx 1946/7

    Plus she took the 3 years off her age prior to meeting him and I think that’s been done to conceal the child.. ahh needle/haystack

    No I can’t find her on the 1939 register but it wasn’t done in Scotland so she might not be on it anyway. As for the adoption papers, we assumed the same but were told by Barnardos I think that he would have to sign them as he would have been her husband and perhaps presumed father but I think this unlikely as he was in the army and home every 6/8 weeks which would be difficult for her during that time to conceal a pregnancy and then she herself joined up in 42

    I can't find the possible child I found born 1939 on the 1939 register. She could of course still be alive though, so wouldn't be on it anyway.

    Yes, it is difficult because there are 50 possible births in England and Wales and 26 births in Scotland.

    The fact that Mary's husband had to sign adoption papers must mean the adoption took place after their marriage, so the baby might be on the 1939 register if born before the register was taken of course. Perhaps someone on here will look at the register to see.

    If you still have any relatives in Scotland perhaps you could persuade them to go to Edinburgh or Glasgow. For a day fee of about £20, they can look at all 26 birth certificates of a Giles baby and quickly find any which are illegitimate and have a mother called Mary.

    Mary married in 1940. The child she had had to have been born 1936 to 1940. She moved around a lot and could have been in either Scotland or England as she had family in both as her father Harry J was English and her mother Sarah was Scottish. We have tried looking for the birth in both places but hitting walls all the time
