Hi I am looking for my grandfather in Austrlia. He is 89/90 years old and lives in a home. He emigrated from Northern Ireland in 1952 and married Rachel Adair. Had 5 siblings. His name is John James McBurnie. He remarried and had another 2 siblings. Before leaving for Australia he got Rachel MCDOwell of Kilwaughter and produced my mother (Maureen McDowell). She was adopted via Dr Barnados. WE have managed to find contact via my mother's side of the family in NI but keep coming up against a brick wall with my father. I was initially told he moved to New Zealand. Any help appreciated. I would like to meet him before he dies. #3

On June 13, 1962, my cousin was born at San Jose Hospital in Santa Clara County, California and was adopted through a private adoption. She was told that her mother was young and from Canada. Birth Mother's name was possibly something like "Beryl", and last name may be "Cornelius", "Corneil", "O'Neil" or something similar. (My cousin was told this info a long time ago and isn't sure how accurate it is.) Both of her adoptive parents are gone now, and she's simply seeking to fill in the blanks about where she came from. Any help as to where to go from here is appreciated! #4

I was bon, May 2, 1952 to a Juanita Keeton in Cleveland Ohio. From what I understand my birth father was a older man, he's probably gone now, so I need to find my birth family. I don't have anyone here, but before I die I need to know where I really came from. My birth mother had me, and was supposed to come back to get me in two weeks. She never came. But took my older sister Dorothy, my sister Jeannie, but left me. She is now sick in Bakersfield, California at 80 years old, I met her once, but when she dies, I told my brother don't call me. My adopted mother was my real mother, and I lost her 6 years ago. #5

I'm looking for my nephew who was born 3/13/70 at Booth Memorial home for unwed mothers in Ohio...possibly Cleveland. My sister who was 15 at the time of birth recently passed after several years of unsuccessfully searching. We would like to fulfill her wishes and hopefully locate him so that he can meet family that he possibly doesn't even know exists and so that we can meet him and welcome him into the family. #11
