I have posted a question on the Royal Marines forum, but thought I'd say Hi to everyone else, I have taken the first steps today to try a find my biological family history (I am adopted), the only information I have was that my Grandfather was the Captain of the Norwegian Navy during WWII, I don't even have the gossiping old aunts to pump for information this could be a struggle, any helpful hints would be much appreciated, |help|

Tink has posted about Grandfather here (http://www.british-genealogy.com/forums/showthread.php?t=34483). Please respond on that thread if you are able to assist with that particular issue.

I am not aware of any web address' for adoption, if you can let me know them that would be great, my mother didn't give much information on my adoption paperwork and has now passed away, thanks for your help
