My Mom was an Utley I just found out

 Im  just a little stunned by this revelation. I have lost all of my family in the past few years and can not ask them about this paper work. . So I found some documentation is there anyway I can send it to you? I grew up knowing my Mom as Joyce Brewer, Her Father was Vernon Brewer VP of Cadillac in the 50s or 60s I think. Her Mom Lucy Brewer I guess. but in reality i guess she was born joyce utley but then adopted.

Is that Cadillac Michigan.I would need to know your mothers name and dates.If she was adopted,you would have to contact Michigan Vital

records.If she is demised,Her records could be Un sealed.
So this has been a bit of a bomb shell. I have some documentation but the hand writting is in script and very difficult to read. She was born JOYCE GLORIA UTLEY 8-14-32 in Warren Michigan I think ? hard to read.

But....I have known her my whole life as Joyce Brewer Schuster? My brother and I are a bit confused.

So if the UTLEY Birth Certificate is true then I have UTLEY as relatives correct? And the Utleys have my mom in their family tree. Which means they have me and my brother. Right
Yes indeed. Your DNA should show relationships to Utleys. They would be included in your family tree which would also include your brother. I will try to come up with some Utleys you are related to. Meanwhile, put your information on a tree and build from there.

Glad you decided to join us.
Do you know when your mother was adopted?
What are you looking for Buddy?

There were quite a few Joyce Utly's. Here are some and maybe one is the right one. Your mtDNA should be identical to that of your biological mother. If you have an mtDNA test, you can find out about your mother's too. My mother's mtDNA indicates that her ancestors had lived in England for a very long time.
