I was successful in getting my mother's birth certificate from 1932, Lawrence County, PA ... listing her adoptive parents. (Her grandparents adopted her). The original birth certificate seems to have her birth father listed, but that information cannot be released. I am hoping to petiion the courts, with my mother's concurrence, to find the name of her birth father, my grandfather. It's the only documentation I think I will be able to find.
Any other insights? ideas? considerations?
