Hi, Is William Judson SLYE - the birth name - or adopted name?
Is William still living ? - If so - he can obtain his adoption papers - which will include the Registration of Birth - [ some items may be blacked out - all depends on govt regulations]
Registration of birth should show name of mother, age,place of birth -depending on the time frame - how many other children born to the mother - how many living - how many stillborn etc.
May or May not show name of the father - depends on circumstances - If the birth father wishes to have his name shown on the registration. [ some don't want their names on registration ] or Mother may not have wished to state the name of the father - so father would be shown as not known.
Do you know if William was born in Hospital? How old was he when adopted ?
