My best friend's grandmother was adopted - in fact, both are, but from completely different places, so one at a time!
Her maternal grandmother was adopted and raised in Oklahoma, and the family is very interested in understanding who the birth family is. I am interested in learning the process of finding the documentation for this, if it is possible at all? I am told the "orphanage" from where she was adopted burned down so that is not an option. She was born in 1932.
The paternal grandmother was adopted in Puerto Rico, with conjecture that the grandmother was originally in Spain but was taken to Puerto Rico as a young infant or toddler. She was born in 1926.
I really don't know anything regarding adoption from a genealogical perspective so anything would be wonderfully helpful.
