Hi, my name is J. Skidmore and I am trying to find a relative. Her name is Jane Anne Skidmore who was adopted probably at birth. She was born on 26 April in Berrington Hosptial - Shewsbury. Her birth mother is M. Skidmore (her maiden name is Curry). In 1950 she worked and lived at the Sandford Hotel at Church Stretton. In 1955 she lived at Severn Villa, Coleham Head, Shewsbury and was employed Employed as a Hospital Cook. If anyone can help I would be very very grateful! |help|

This is a genealogy forum. As a general rule we're only interested in people when they're dead!

Nobody here has any means of finding out that person's adoptive name (other than in the unlikely event of the person herself happening to read this).

What you need is the Adoption Contact Register which you can read about here:

Apparently she has seen it. I don't know why she didn't mention it in her original message. The 2005 email address now bounces.

As things stand, the Adoption Contacts Register is her best hope.

Hi, thanks for your messages. My relatives have been doing our Family Tree which is when we first saw the earlier post from Jane. We then realised the connections . Unfortunately, when we finally joined the site and tried to contact Jane her email address came pinging back. We are so close yet so very far! |computer|
